What is the IDSA Leadership Institute?

Our Community of Leaders program is more than just a leadership development program. It's a transformative journey designed specifically for mid and senior-career infectious diseases specialists. Starting in February each year, leaders gain access to the IDSA Academy learning management system; there, they engage with a series of insightful webinars, thought-provoking readings, and interactive discussion boards. The journey culminates in an immersive, multi-day, in-person capstone intensive each May in Arlington, VA.
