FIDSA Designees Announced: 113 Distinguished Physicians, Scientists Honored
IDSA has announced those who have been elected this year to be Fellows of IDSA (FIDSA). Fellowship in IDSA honors those who have achieved professional excellence and provided significant service to the profession.

“Each one of these physicians and scientists has achieved an outstanding level of accomplishment in the field of Infectious Diseases and is a recognized leader in his or her community and institution, whether it be a hospital, clinic, research lab, or other setting” said IDSA President Stephen Calderwood, MD, FIDSA. “IDSA recognizes these accomplished physicians, researchers, and scientists for their contributions to our field with the honored designation of FIDSA.”  

Applicants for IDSA Fellowship must be nominated by their peers and meet specified criteria, including continuing identification with the field of Infectious Diseases, and national or regional recognition. 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.
