There are up to four positions available per year. Candidates are required to apply through ERAS and are selected through the National Residency Matching Program. The length of the fellowship program is three years; however, many fellows continue their research activities for one or more additional years. Fellows in the ABIM Research Pathway require four years of fellowship, and this can usually be accommodated in our program.
Qualified candidates must have completed three years of residency training in internal medicine in the United States or Canada prior to entering the fellowship program. Residents will be accepted after only two years of internal medicine residency only if they are accepted in the ABIM Research Pathway.
Upon receipt of the required materials, we will notify you as to whether an interview will be scheduled. If financial or other constraints prohibit you from attending an interview, you should notify Dr. Palmore as soon as possible. You may also contact the NIAID ID Training Program office with questions.
