IDSA Antimicrobial Stewardship Centers of Excellence Program
Application for CoE Designation
The IDSA Antimicrobial Stewardship Centers of Excellence program is intended to recognize health care facilities that implement and maintain highly effective ASPs. IDSA acknowledges that many institutions are part of health systems; however, the CoE Core Criteria was developed to assess the resources and capabilities of a single institution. The CoE designation will not apply to an entity that provides services that support, in whole or in part, the AS program of an institution; therefore, each facility is required to apply on an individual facility basis. If you are applying as a healthcare system/network, please contact CoE staff at firstname.lastname@example.org before applying. Please be prepared to provide evidence of stewardship activity and practices across each of the facilities seeking designation.
If your institution meets the criteria for the Centers of Excellence program, there will be a $5,000 license fee for the 2-year designation.
