Infectious Diseases Fellowship
The IU School of Medicine Infectious Diseases Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited, multi-campus program offering subspecialty training in clinical infectious diseases. The program prepares trainees with the knowledge and skills needed to become proficient in the consultative and primary care of patients with infectious diseases and to contribute meaningfully to a health care institution’s infection epidemiology activities. The curriculum provides a strong basis for building a career in clinical practice or medical research.
In addition to patient-care experiences, fellows have the opportunity to participate in basic science research as well as epidemiologic, clinical and implementation studies. Funding for additional years of fellowship training is available through the Division of Infectious Diseases, individual research projects and an NIH-funded T-32 Training Grant. Infectious Diseases fellows can participate in clinical rotations and/or research in Kenya and other parts of East Africa.
