  • LEAP Fellowship: Leadership in Epidemiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship and Public Health

  • The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS), have joined together to create the Leaders in Epidemiology, Antimicrobial stewardship, and Public health (LEAP) Fellowship. Funded by an award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this fellowship aims to foster the next generation of Infectious Diseases leaders in hospital epidemiology and antimicrobial stewardship, and give them the hands-on experience with the public health department that they’ll need to bridge these aspects of healthcare. 

    Four grants of $100,000 will be awarded to Infectious Disease Fellows or early career clinical ID physicians (MD, MD/PhD or foreign equivalent degree) that will help to foster a bridge and collaborative endeavors between academic institutions and local public health departments.
