The mission of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section
on Allergy and Immunology to ensure that pediatric-aged
patients receive the highest quality of care in allergy,
asthma, and immunology. This will be accomplished by
serving section constituents through education, communication,
and representation of the highest quality. For more
information about section activities and benefits, refer
to the Section
on Allergy and Immunology brochure.
How Do I Join?
Membership in the section is open to all AAP Fellows,
Life Fellows, Corresponding Fellows, Honorary Fellows,
CPA/AAP Dual Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, and Retired
Fellows who are board-certified by the American Board
of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI) and the American Board
of Pediatrics. A copy of the ABAI certificate is required
with the section application. Candidate Fellows* and
Post Residency Training Fellows** are also eligible
for membership by submiting a letter from their training
program director to verify their status along with a
completed application. Fellows (FAAP) who are enrolled
in or who successfully complete an ACGME-certified allergy-immunology
training program are eligible for section membership
up to five years. Complete the Section
Application and the AAP
application (if you are not a member already).
The section has approximately 200 members and currently
does not accept affiliate members. Dues are annually
assessed at $25. Visit the section
membership page for more information about becoming
a section member or contact section staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 847/434-4927 with questions or comments.
Fellows must have completed an Accreditation Council
for Graduate Medical Education-accredited allergy-immunology
training (fellowship) program. One can remain a Candidate
Fellow up to the limits set forth in the AAP bylaws
or until ABAI certification is obtained, whichever comes
first. (To qualify for the ABAI exam, one must be ABP-
or ABIM-certified.) **Post Residency Training Fellows
are eligible for section membership if they are currently
in an allergy-immunology training (fellowship) program.
