Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program Tracks

Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training is a two- to three-year program depending on the track each fellow chooses. The fellowship tracks are designed to meet all Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) training requirements and 12 months of clinical experience and 24 months of continuity clinic experience for American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) subspecialty board eligibility.

The first year of training is highly concentrated on clinical infectious diseases training and includes nine months of clinical service, one month of a clinical microbiology rotation, one month of an ambulatory rotation and a ½ day per week continuity clinic. Years 2 and 3 allow protected time for research under the mentorship of a faculty advisor chosen by the fellow.
