Call for Papers
This is a reminder to submit your latest research towards the special issue of the South African Journal of Infectious Diseases.
Title: FIDSSA Wisdom & Personal Reflection Series.
The Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases (SAJID) publishes topics on all aspects of infectious diseases, particularly those of importance to the FIDSSA societies. This special issue is targeted at FIDSSA members and will provide a library of career resources in the field of infectious diseases.
The Federation of Infectious Diseases Societies of Southern Africa (FIDSSA) is planning a Wisdom & Personal Reflections Series targeted at junior and mid-career FIDSSA members. The aim of this series is to outline the diversity of career trajectories in infectious diseases in South Africa and to provide a library of mentor/mentee resources for FIDSSA members.
Using a mix of written statements, pre-recorded audio interviews and live/recorded virtual lectures, we will invite respected/senior people within the infectious diseases field to reflect on their personal career trajectories, the impact of their work, the mistakes they’ve made along the way and the advice they would give to FIDSSA members for happy and fulfilling careers in infectious diseases.
Each of the four societies within FIDSSA will nominate people in three main tracks – academic, clinical and public health. We would like to include a good mix of participants, reflecting our broader membership, in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, academic versus rural medicine and private versus public sector.
Submissions deadline: 15 November 2021
