Core Antimicrobial Stewardship Curriculum for Faculty

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.

The faculty version of the curriculum provides access to manage fellow completions and attendance, exclusive video content for classroom facilitation, and guidance on implementation. For additional details regarding faculty participation and the time commitment, please refer to the flyer at the bottom of this page.

Target Audience
