The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Infectious Diseases encompasses two or more years. This program is oriented to provide an opportunity for physicians to develop those clinical, research, and teaching skills necessary for academic careers. The fellowship experience is arranged to meet individual goals. In general, trainees spend the first fellowship year in supervised clinical infectious diseases consultation activities and in the clinical microbiology laboratories. The subsequent year(s) is spent developing research, epidemiologic, and investigative skills. Fellows do not match into a designated clinical or research track, but a large proportion of trainees extend their fellowship for one or more years to gain further research experience. The program is accredited, and successful completion of the program will lead to eligibility for the Infectious Diseases subspecialty board examination given by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
