Participation in the ASCIA Primary Immune Deficiency (PID) Advanced Training meetings (previously known as Summer Schools) is restricted to advanced trainees or recently qualified consultants and numbers are limited.

Prior to 2007 it had been almost a decade since the last ASCIA Advanced Training Meeting had been held. We are therefore grateful to Dr Joanne Smart and Dr Karl Bleasel for instigating the ASCIA PID Summer Schools and to Professor Dominic Mallon for instigating the most recent ASCIA Advanced Training meetings.
