Our Institute is proud to offer an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited, clinical- and research-focused fellowship program for those interested in pursuing academic careers in infectious diseases. We strive to train outstanding clinical infectious disease physicians with a focus on research aimed at understanding and treating infectious disease issues of today and infectious disease challenges of tomorrow. We seek highly qualified internal medicine and medicine-pediatric trained residents for three internal medicine and one medicine-pediatric fellowship positions.
All interested applicants are encouraged to apply through the Electronic Residencies Application Service (ERAS).
Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Fellowship
In addition to our adult infectious disease fellowship training, we offer this combined training in conjunction with the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Children's National Medical Center. We are accepting applications from highly qualified graduates of U.S. and Canadian internal medicine-pediatrics residencies for our joint four-year fellowship program. The fellow will spend one year each in clinical pediatric infectious diseases and clinical adult infectious diseases, with the remaining two years of training under a chosen research mentor. Applications are accepted through ERAS. Interviews are arranged with both institutions.
Our fellowship concentrates the clinical experiences into the first year with rotations at NIH, Johns Hopkins, George Washington University Hospital, Medstar Georgetown, Medstar Washington Hospital Center.
Fellows rotate for two to three months through NIH Infectious Diseases Consultation Service Rotation, NIAID Inpatient Ward Rotation, four outside hospital rotations, and outpatient rotations (2 weeks optional).
Second- and third-years fellows undertake clinical and/or bench projects supervised by faculty mentors with the goal of preparing them for careers involving clinical, basic, or translational research after their fellowship.
