In an effort to further educate medical students and residents about the field of Infectious Diseases, IDSA's Education and Research Foundation will provide $500 stipends to support new and existing ID interest group events at medical schools. The purpose of the program is to increase student interest in ID. Events can be talks or journal clubs on topics related to ID, movie screenings, workshops and ID cases, or networking events.
