Trainee Profiles


AUCD trainees do amazing things! Here we highlight the achievements and interests of trainees past and present. Profiled individuals have been selected from AUCD member programs (LEND, UCEDD, IDDRD) to share their research, clinical, policy, and advocay experiences and how their training has influenced their professional interests and visions for their future. Like these trainees, each program is also unique which may be reflected in the profiles.
