Deadline Extended: LEAP Fellowship Application

Feb 13, 2020 | Christina Baum

The Leaders in Epidemiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship and Public Health (LEAP) Fellowship application deadline has been extended until Monday, February 24th at Midnight Pacific Time. There is still time to start an application today and this will give those in the process a little more time to complete.

The LEAP Fellowship is a 12 month funded program for early career ID physicians or physicians currently in ID fellowship (MD or DO). Its purpose is to train ID physicians how to be medical leaders that can bridge the gap between clinical healthcare and public health departments, with a focus on preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and antimicrobial resistance (AR). The program is led by IDSA, SHEA and PIDS, and is funded by the CDC. This years’ LEAP Fellowship commences July 1, 2020 and carries a $100,000 award for the 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.

Visit the IDSA website page for more information, including application materials at www.idsociety.org/LEAPfellowship

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Michele Wagner, MPH, LEAP Program Manager, at mwagner@idsociety.org or by phone at 202-462-2618.
