  • Infectious Diseases Society of America Honors 102 Distinguished Physicians, Scientists


    The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the nation’s leading infectious diseases professional society, recognizes the distinguished physicians and scientists from the United States and around the world who were elected this year to be Fellows of IDSA.

    Fellowship in IDSA honors those who have achieved professional excellence and provided significant service to the profession. “Infectious disease physicians and scientists dedicate themselves to stopping infectious diseases in their tracks—whether it be preventing spread of disease through vaccine development, surveillance, or implementing the right treatment at the right time. Each of the individuals awarded the status of FIDSA has shown him or herself to be a leader in the field, in their community as well as in their institution. I congratulate each and every one and am honored to work with you in such a critical endeavor,” said IDSA President William Powderly, MD, FIDSA.

    Applicants for IDSA Fellowship must be nominated by their peers and meet specified criteria, including continuing identification with the field of infectious diseases, national or regional recognition, and publication of their work. Nominees are reviewed and elected by the IDSA Board of Directors. Fellows of IDSA work in many different settings, including clinical practice, teaching, research, public health, and health care administration.
