Clinical Tracks

We take great pride in training not only accomplished physician-scientists but also talented clinician educators who go on to pursue successful careers as clinicians and clinician-educators.

Areas of Clinical Training

Starting in the second year, fellows interested in clinical careers can focus their training on specific areas of clinical infectious diseases by pursuing one of the following clinical tracks in the second (and possibly third) year of training:

  • Transplant Infectious Diseases Track
  • HIV and Viral Hepatitis Track
  • Antimicrobial Stewardship and Hospital Epidemiology Track
  • General ID/Clinician Educator Track

Transplant Infectious Diseases track

Fellows with an interest in Transplant ID can pursue the Transplant ID Track to gain clinical and research experience in the field of transplant infectious diseases. This includes spending additional time on the inpatient services and the ambulatory setting to develop expertise in the prevention, evaluation, and management of infectious diseases in solid organ transplant candidates and recipients, patients with hematologic malignancies, and bone marrow transplant recipients. In addition to clinical training, this training will provide mentored opportunities for scholarly work in this area and fellows will be encouraged to attend regional and national meetings to present their work.

HIV and Viral Hepatitis track 

This track is designed for fellows interested in gaining expertise in the management and prevention of HIV, viral hepatitis, and sexually transmitted infections. Fellows may engage in additional focused and intensive training in the inpatient as well as outpatient settings, medical education, and scholarly projects. Fellows will be encouraged to apply the health equity framework and to consider the impact of health disparities, substance use, and other social determinants of health on the care and prevention of these infections.

Scholarly Oversight Committee

Every fellow, regardless of which track they are on, will have a Scholarly Oversight Committee, which consists of mentors, co-mentors, and key faculty to oversee every fellow’s career development. Drs. Angela Gomez-Simonds and Mike Yin are chair and co-chair of the Scholarly Oversight Committee and they oversee the fellows’ scholarly progress.
