IDSA, SHEA, and PIDS to Continue LEAP Fellowship for 2020-2021 Academic Year

IDSA, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society were recently awarded a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to continue the Leaders in Epidemiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship, and Public Health (LEAP) Fellowship through the 2020-2021 academic year.

The LEAP Fellowship is a 1-year funded training program, aimed at developing late-stage ID trainees and early-stage ID physicians into health care leaders capable of working as clinical partners to local and national public health agencies.

Applicants are being sought for the LEAP program for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year. Application criteria are still being finalized; however, preliminary criteria are as follows:

  • Applicants must be physicians between their first year of ID fellowship and up to two years post fellowship.
  • Applicants must be associated with an Infectious Diseases training program, and with a health care facility with robust antibiotic stewardship, infection control, and/or hospital epidemiology programs.
  • Applicants must have or be in the process of establishing a relationship with state or local health departments.

Final application instructions and criteria will be sent out in late 2019. The most up-to-date information can be obtained by visiting IDSA’s LEAP Fellowship webpage or by contacting LEAP Fellowship Program Manager Michele Wagner, at: mwagner@idsociety.org.
