Infectious Diseases Fellowship

Training

The basic fellowship lasts two years and two new fellows enter the program each year. Additional years of training are available for combined medicine and pediatric infectious diseases, for advanced expertise in hospital epidemiology and public health, for conducting HIV clinical trials, and for performing bench research in the pathogenesis of infectious diseases.

    Conferences and Education

    There are several division conferences in which the fellows routinely participate. There is a weekly clinical conference where fellows and faculty present cases for discussion along with a review of the literature. In addition, there is a monthly research conference hosted by the division, with regular participation by faculty in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. Core curriculum conference is held weekly and journal club is held monthly.

    Fellows may elect to pursue the Master of Public Health degree, a Master in Clinical and Translational Sciences degree or non-degree coursework in epidemiology and biostatistics or other areas. Course work is offered tuition-free for fellows during their fellowship.
