The 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.
