Volunteer

The field of clinical virology continues to grow at a rapid pace, along with related challenges and opportunities. The number and scope of PASCV projects are growing as well. PASCV members have the opportunity to help shape the field and to support PASCV’s strategic plan by serving on a committee or Council. PASCV activities focus on clinical virology education and clinical virology practice assistance/advocacy; its programs developed independently and in collaboration with other societies. All volunteers must adhere to PASCV's Policies and Procedures Manual.
