The annual meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) brings together physicians, scientists and other healthcare professionals involved in research, patient care, public health, disease prevention, and education in the field of infectious diseases. This meeting provides three and a half days of broad continuing educational courses and comprehensive educational experiences in the major facets of infectious diseases: pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The courses combine expert reviews of the traditional field of infectious diseases with emphasis on the most contemporary trends, including emerging infections, new diagnostics, vaccines, and therapeutics.
The conference endeavors to update infectious diseases clinicians and investigators with state-of-the-art developments in the field, including timely reviews of recent advances in clinical care and research and original reports of clinical, translational, and basic research. It also strives to bridge the widening gaps among the fields of infectious diseases clinical practice, clinical research, epidemiological and health services research, translational research, and basic research, as well as to promote multi-disciplinary dialogue and collaboration among clinicians and investigators, thus facilitating advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases.
