Apply Now: Leaders in Epidemiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship, and Public Health (LEAP) Fellowship

Dec 30, 2019 | Christina Baum

In September 2019, the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) were awarded a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 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 year of training, aimed at developing late-stage ID trainees and early-stage ID physicians into healthcare leaders capable of working as clinical partners to local and national public health agencies.

Applicants are being sought for the LEAP program for this upcoming 2020-2021 academic year.

Application criteria are as follows:

  • Applicants must be physicians between their first year of ID fellowship and up to two years post-Fellowship will be eligible to apply to the LEAP Fellowship.
  • Applicants must be associated with an Infectious Diseases training program, and with a healthcare 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.

The most up-to-date information can be obtained by going to the IDSA’s LEAP Fellowship Website or by contacting the LEAP Fellowship Program Manager Michele Wagner, at: mwagner@idsociety.org.
