The FIDSSA Wisdom Series

Welcome to the Wisdom Series

Recorded introduction by Nelesh Govender – video excerpt

The Wisdom series is targeted at junior and mid-career FIDSSA members. The aims of this series are two-fold: first, to outline the diversity of careers in infectious diseases in South Africa and second, to provide a permanent library of mentor and mentee resources for our members.

Using a mix of written contributions and pre-recorded interviews, we invited respected people in the local infectious diseases community to reflect on their personal career trajectories, the impact of their work, the mistakes they had made along the way and the advice they would give to FIDSSA members for happy and fulfilling careers. FIDSSA members nominated people working in three main tracks – academic, clinical and public health – and we aimed to include a good mix of contributors, in the middle of their careers as well as experienced wise voices, reflecting our broader membership.

We hope that you enjoy these resources and find them helpful in your own career.

Best wishes, Nelesh Govender (FIDSSA President, 2017-2021)
