Program Overview and Leadership

We take great pride in training fellows who are only accomplished physician-scientists but also talented clinician educators who have pursued successful academic careers in transplant infectious diseases, HIV and viral hepatitis, hospital epidemiology, general infectious diseases and public health. 

The first year of training provides exposure to a great breadth and depth of clinical cases as well as elective time to pursue scholarly work. In the second year, fellows interested in clinician-educator  or clinically-focused careers, can choose to focus their clinical training to gain expertise in specific areas of clinical infectious diseases. This is possible by pursuing one of the following clinical tracks:

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

Fellows interested in developing careers in basic, translational, clinical epidemiological and implementation science research are supported over the course of their second and third year of training through a variety of mechanisms, such as for example, our ID T32 Training Grant or institutional Training Grants (T32) in ICAP at the Mailman School of Public Health,  and the HIV Center for Behavioral and Clinical Research.
