ABSTRACT:

This report, which is part of a series discussing workforce trends for general pediatrics and related subspecialty areas, highlights the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) workforce data for pediatric infectious diseases.

This lack of information hampers efforts to define the nature of the field and determine whether any formalized, additional training or experience should be required for physicians in this clinical...
