IDSA Honors 219 Distinguished Physicians, Scientists With FIDSA Designation

The Infectious Diseases Society of America, the nation’s leading infectious diseases professional society, recognizes the largest class of distinguished physicians and scientists from the United States and around the world to be elected as Fellows of IDSA.

Fellowship in IDSA is one of the highest honors in the field of infectious diseases. It is given to those who have achieved professional excellence and provided significant service to the profession.

“The 219 individuals chosen to receive the FIDSA designation this year are on the front lines of discovery, patient care and public health, and we are proud to honor their work and dedication,” said Carlos del Rio, MD, FIDSA, president of IDSA. “These ID physicians and scientists represent the passion and commitment needed to educate leaders around the globe about current and future health threats. We all benefit from their pivotal contributions to our local communities and expertise within the field of medicine. I am proud to work and learn alongside them.”  

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. 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 health care administration.
