The DBP Fellowship Training Section continues to act as a resource to enhance fellowship training in DBP. We provide updates, consultation and support to program directors. At our Program Director's lunch in Nashville, we plan to continue discussion on ACGME's next accreditation system (NAS). We will update the status of implementation of milestones and entrustable professional activities [EPAs] relevant to our subspecialty, outline the timeline and requirements for establishment of Clinical Competency Committees, and share other important information from our members who have been involved with the Association of Pediatric Program Directors and American Board of Pediatrics. We have implemented the Electronic Residency Application Service [ERAS] common application and will share information as to how it's going. We will also update the status of our mentor match program, including the introduction of new faculty leadership of the program. Mentor match continues to introduce fellows and junior faculty with more senior faculty across programs and disciplines according to research and career interests. We welcome other ideas for discussion topics relevant to fellowship training in DBP.
