Infectious Diseases Fellowship
The Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship is an ACGME-approved training program designed to produce superior academic pediatric infectious disease specialists. The standard fellowship is three years in duration, with the majority of the first year devoted to clinical training and a progressive increase in protected time for research activities over the next two years.
The University of Pittsburgh offers a wide variety of research and career specific options:
- For fellows who see their future in academic clinical education, a Master’s or Certificate in Medical Education is available.
- Degrees in clinical research (from certificate to PhD) can also be sought in the Institute for Clinical Research Education at the University.
- A host of opportunities are available for learning bench research from world-renowned researchers at the University of Pittsburgh (many of whom are on the Children’s campus).
- A number of our fellows are in the Pediatric Scientist Development Program which combines residency and fellowship training for trainees dedicated to research.
In addition to a wide variety of clinical and bench research opportunities, the fellows will also actively participate in Infection Prevention and Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs within Children’s Hospital. Limited funds are available for extension of the research activities of fellows to a fourth year of training in order to better prepare the fellow for an academic career. U.S. citizenship is not required for application to the fellowship.
The outstanding combination of clinical training and academic education provide a stellar training environment for fellows then succeed in their careers aspirations. Over the last 10 years, 100% of fellows passed their Pediatric Infectious Diseases Subspecialty Board certification examination.
Our fellowship program offers a wide breadth of clinical experience at Children's and other UPMC hospitals.
