Each year, training sites are polled to identify topics of interest for the Visiting Professor Program. Requests for Visiting Professors include clinicians from a broad variety of subspecialties.

Once the requests are received from the pediatric training sites, WWAMI leadership makes considerations based on the number of requests for each subspecialty, past visits from a subspecialty to a training site, and availability of requested subspecialists. These considerations are compiled to create the Visiting Professor wish list annual schedule.
