Education & Training Resources Practice Guidelines Journals & Publications Policy & Advocacy Meetings About IDSA
May 2016
FROM THE PRESIDENT
What is IDSA Doing about the Future of ID?
The Society recently released the results of its Compensation Survey. The response from members was reminiscent of the response to last year’s Match results. A thread within both responses was, “What is IDSA doing about it?” Several efforts are underway including projects under the leadership of the Clinical Affairs Committee and the ID Recruitment Task Force that I am confident will make a difference in both of these areas that are of considerable concern among our members. Equally important in the feedback that we’ve received is that members need to hear more from us about our work and also need mechanisms to engage in discussion about these and other issues. I’m excited about some upcoming new avenues for such dialogue.
