Dear PAS Community,

On behalf of the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Program Committee, I am pleased to announce the call for Scholarly Sessions, Workshops & Volunteers is NOW OPEN for our Virtual PAS 2021 Meeting.

As you develop your submissions, we encourage you to use the concepts identified in our Learning Pathways, keeping in mind how basic, clinical/translational, and health services research topics relate to each pathway. We also encourage you to develop cross-disciplinary proposals of interest across and subspecialties. We provide a small listing of possible topics to seed your thinking. Finally, if you wish to update and re-submit your accepted PAS 2020 proposal, you are free to do so.
As we prepare for a virtual PAS 2021, there will be some changes, but our vision to be the premier North American scholarly child health meeting remains unchanged.  

At PAS 2021 you can expect the same opportunity to

  • Present your scholarship to thousands of pediatric professionals from 60+ specialties
  • Hear high-quality scholarship in familiar PAS formats
  • Network & collaborate with colleagues from 500+ hospitals & institutions
  • Build your career or help another to advance
  • Use the familiar PAS submission timeline, process & use tools
  • Participate during familiar PAS Meeting dates…and beyond!
  • Earn CME & MOC credits

NEW benefits to expect include …

  • Easy access to PAS content during & after PAS 2021
  • A user-friendly virtual event platform that will capitalize on your Zoom expertise
  • An improved PAS schedule with less concurrency and more accommodative of busy schedules
  • Friendly help when you need it – as you submit, participate, and access PAS content

We look forward to your PAS 2021 proposals. We look forward to our virtual gathering and thank you for your support in making the PAS Meeting the premier North American scholarly child health meeting.

Best Regards,

Patrick D. Brophy MD, MHCDS
