Primary Immunodeficiency discussion group meetings are held 3-4 times per year with the aim to educate clinical specialists, registrars and laboratory scientists on clinical and immunological aspects of primary immunodeficiencies.
The meetings are rostered as part of the VIT schedule and are held on Thursday afternoons from 5:30-7:30pm with two presentations from the hosts. The hosts are one of the four major teaching hospitals: The Royal Children's Hospital, The Royal Melbourne Hospital, The Alfred Hospital and Monash Health. The presentation is followed by short case reports from each of the other centres involved in PID research. See the timetable below for past and future topics of discussion.
