Thank you for your interest in the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at the University of Kansas Medical Center. 

Based upon the AAMC and IDSA Training Program Directors Committee posted guidance, clear cost and time savings, environmental responsibility factors and high-level data citing success of virtual interviews, the University of Kansas Infectious Diseases Fellowship will be conducting all virtual recruitment again this academic year.

We accept applications through the ERAS® (Electronic Residency Application Service) for Applicants.

A complete application includes the following:

  • Up-to-date Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Board Scores
  • ECFMG (as applicable)
  • Letter of recommendation from your program director
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Personal statement
  • Current photograph
  • Official transcripts

Please provide all required elements, as we cannot consider incomplete applications.

Applicants may begin applying for the Infectious Diseases fellowship through ERAS® in July of each year.  Applications will be reviewed and interviews offered over the subsequent four months, with a start date of July the following year. Once ERAS® closes, additional applications will be accepted only if positions remain available.

Of special note:

  • We have six approved fellowship positions available over each two-year period. We accept three fellows per academic year.
  • We accept J-1 and H1-B visas in our program. 

We strive to adhere to the highest professional standards as encouraged by the National Resident Matching Program and the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine concerning communication with our applicants during and following your visit with us. All program representatives -- faculty, staff, and trainees -- who take part in recruitment are trained to know which questions are appropriate to minimize undue stress and coercion on applicants. We believe that every applicant is entitled to a professional, courteous experience.

Please browse the Infectious Diseases division website, as well as our Internal Medicine Departmental website, for additional information about our hospital and program.

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our fellowship administrative coordinator. We look forward to hearing from you.
