Our program offers three tracks:
Clinician Educator Track provides training to fellows interested in pursuing a career with a clinical, education, and/or leadership focus.
Research Track provides training for fellows interested in pursuing a research career, including basic, translational, clinical, epidemiology, and/or global health research.
The Combined Adult/Peds fellowship (4 years) is for fellows interested in working with both adult and pediatric populations.
Both research and clinician educator tracks spend the first year primarily focused on inpatient consult rotations at our various
training sites. The second year of the clinical track is individualized based on the fellow's Area of Emphasis and career goals, and includes a combination of clinical rotations, coursework, and protected time for scholarly projects. During the second and third years of the research track, fellows spend the majority of their time (~80%) working with a mentor on a
T-32 grant-funded research project, focusing either on general infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance or HIV. In the combined adult/peds fellowship, fellows spend one year doing adult ID clinical training, one year doing pediatric clinical ID training, and two years doing research. This track is not available in 2023.
