Major Features of Training Program: Our 3-year ACGME accredited program provides well-rounded training in both clinical infectious diseases and research. Our goal is to train pediatricians to be outstanding infectious diseases clinicians who are prepared for a career in clinical infectious diseases, antimicrobial stewardship, infection control, transplantation or research (with a strong emphasis on academic medicine). The inpatient service is very busy and is supplemented with outpatient clinic. Our fellowship pass rate has been 100%.
