  • Infectious Diseases Society of America Honors 105 Distinguished Physicians, Scientists


    The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the nation’s leading infectious diseases professional society, recognizes the distinguished physicians and scientists from the United States and around the world who were elected this year to be Fellows of IDSA.

    Fellowship in IDSA honors those who have achieved professional excellence and provided significant service to the profession. “There has never been a more critical nor more exciting time for the field of infectious diseases. From an emerging outbreak of Ebola in the Congo to domestic outbreaks of measles to working tirelessly to solve the mystery of the patients before them, infectious diseases doctors are on the front lines of research and clinical care, keeping us safe from dangerous illness,” said IDSA President Paul Auwaerter, MD, MBA, FIDSA. “The individuals receiving the FIDSA designation have demonstrated that they are true leaders—in their institutions, their communities, and in the field of infectious diseases.”

    Applicants for IDSA Fellowship must be nominated by their peers and meet specified criteria that may include continuing identification with the field of infectious diseases, national or regional recognition, and publication of their scholarly work. 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 healthcare administration.
