The IDSA Core Antimicrobial Stewardship (CAS) Curriculum was developed to provide infectious diseases (ID) fellows with foundational education and training in Antimicrobial
Stewardship (AS), regardless of ultimate career plans. The curriculum is designed for use within an existing ID fellowship training program to ensure the future ID workforce is equipped to oversee and participate in AS efforts.
