The Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program abides by the selection and recruitment policies set forth by the College of Medicine Office of Graduate Medical Education.
We participate in the NRMP and accept applications only through the ERAS system. ERAS applications must be completed and available for review by our program before October 1. Selected candidates will be invited to attend one of several day-long programs. The candidates will be provided the opportunity to meet faculty, staff and current fellows and to personally view the facilities.
We offer two trainee positions each year.
