APPIC recently developed a series of webinars that address fellowship, application and tips as you pursue selection. We strongly encourage you to review these. One tip in particular stands out: "Don't be shy about  communicating with the program about their selection process." We welcome your questions about the process, about our program and health system and about us and why we do what we do.
