Fellowship in Stewardship and Resistance Receives CDC Funding

IDSA, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) have been awarded a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to establish an Antibiotic Stewardship and Resistance Innovative Fellowships (ASRIFs) program to build and connect expertise in public health and healthcare.

Each society is committed to training the next generation of ID physicians, scientists, and public health leaders needed to address antibiotic resistance by connecting public health and healthcare at the individual patient, facility, health system, community, federal, and global levels. Through this fellowship program, IDSA, SHEA, and PIDS will advance innovative approaches to combat antibiotic resistance and promote stewardship and public health by training fellows to make an impact on their institutions, public health, and patient care.

Fellowships will be made available to ID practitioners who have completed their first year of fellowship and will require the associated training programs and healthcare facilities to meet select criteria such as robust antibiotic stewardship and infection control programs and existing relationships with state or local health departments. The one-year fellowships will be administered in partnership with the CDC and IDSA/SHEA/PIDS and will culminate in a presentation of the fellows’ work at IDWeek 2019. In addition, an evaluation of the program by fellow recipients, institutions, health departments, and fellowship staff will be conducted to identify areas to improve the program.
