Founded in 1979, the Society is affiliated with the Infectious Disease Society of America. We provide continuing medical education to medical doctors and pharmacists with an interest in clinical infectious disease and act as a forum for the exchange of ideas.
The Society sponsors an annual educational conference with CME and CPE credits. It publishes a membership directory, and operates a surveillance e-mail network for sharing information on emerging Infectious Disease. Membership dues are $100.00 per year. Students may join the society for free and will have non voting membership. A sponsor recommendation letter from a TIDS member confirming the student status will need to be provided.
