Our fellowship is a two-year program with an emphasis on training in clinical infectious diseases. A third year of training in research techniques is made available in exceptional cases for fellows preparing to accept a faculty position.

Candidates must be Internal Medicine board-eligible or ABIM-certified. Learn more about our program and overall training emphases, under the guidance of our talented and dedicated faculty:

Clinical

Experiences will include inpatient consultations and a weekly half-day outpatient clinic (maintained continuously through the fellowship). Outpatient clinical care includes management of HIV as well as care of patients on outpatient parenteral antimicrobials (from all medical and surgical disciplines).

Each fellow will also gain experience managing patients with mycobacterial diseases, fungal infections, pre/post-transplantation patients, immunocompromised patients and a variety of outpatient referrals for other complicated infections.

Research

research w/protective eyewear running diagnostic equipment

Research experience is required and encouraged in conjunction with our faculty, basic scientists or clinical microbiologists/pharmacists from the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology or Department of Pharmacy.

We have several research project partnerships with colleagues in the Gastroenterology, Pulmonary/Critical Care and Cardiology divisions; partnering with our surgical colleagues provides additional opportunities. We also encourage our fellows to gain clinical trials experience by participating in ongoing studies of antimicrobials and vaccinations.

Teaching

instructional session led by fellow

Fellows are expected to participate in educating medical students, interns and residents rotating through the infectious diseases service. We believe that professionalism, ethical standards and humanistic qualities are paramount to the successful practice of medicine, and our faculty subscribes to the "lead by example" philosophy.

We look forward to working with you and helping you graduate as a competent, confident and compassionate physician who will be a lifelong learner and a dedicated teacher for the next generation, ready to solve new problems and disseminate information for others to study and emulate.
