26 Medical Students Set to Explore ID Firsthand
IDSA is pleased to announce 26 recipients of this year’s Medical Scholars Program scholarships.

Supported by the IDSA Education and Research Foundation, the Medical Scholars Program was established in 2002 and has awarded scholarships to more than 450 medical students so they can pursue ID-related independent clinical or research activities outside their institutional programs. The Medical Scholars Program helps attract the best and brightest to the field by giving medical students a first-hand look at the challenges and opportunities of working in infectious disease.

Applications for next year will open early December 2014. For more information on the recipients’ research topics, please visit
