COCIT's Affiliate Membership Category Expanded!
Thank you to all COCIT members who voted in our March election. The response was
overwhelming - 91.5% of those voting chose to allow non-physicians to join COCIT as
Affiliate Members. To qualify, non-physicians must be actively involved in the
administration and practice of pediatric medicine and be employed by or under the
direct supervision of a Fellow of the AAP. Affiliate Members will be eligible to
subscribe to any of our listservs, will have access to COCIT Members Only Web
content, and will receive our semi-annual newsletter. In addition, Affiliate
Membership includes a subscription to AAP News.
You can find an application for Affiliate Membership at
http://www.aap.org/member/AppforAffiliateMembership.pdf. The application must
include a letter of support from an AAP Fellow or Specialty Fellow.
If members of your office staff (RNs, PAs, PNPs, office managers, etc) are
interested in becoming Affiliate Members of COCIT, please encourage them to do so!
