IDSA Honors 114 Distinguished Physicians, Scientists with FIDSA Designation

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. “From fighting an outbreak of Ebola in the DRC to containing domestic outbreaks of measles to researching the latest cures, infectious diseases doctors are on the front lines of research and clinical care, protecting individual and public health” said IDSA President Cynthia Sears, MD, FIDSA. “Receiving the FIDSA designation is the ID profession’s highest honor given to those who have demonstrated that they are true leaders in the field of infectious diseases.”

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