MAJOR FEATURES OF TRAINING PROGRAM: We aim to develop future leaders in pediatric infectious diseases research, clinical care, and teaching. Our fellowship training program prepares individuals to excel as academic researchers and leaders by providing exceptional research opportunities, diverse clinical and educational experiences, and individualized mentorship.
Fellows can work with faculty across multiple University of Washington departments; the fellowship program assists each trainee in developing research objectives suited to his/her interests and that can lead to the development of an independent research program.
Fellows acquire clinical expertise in Infectious Diseases through direct patient care as a consultant, didactic teaching, and participation in conferences. Our main clinical site is a >400 bed regional referral hospital serving Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. Fellows emerge with extensive experience managing a wide variety of infections in previously healthy children, those with surgical and device-related infections, and immune-compromised children with primary immune deficiencies, malignancies, CAR-T cell therapy, solid organ transplantation, or bone marrow transplantation.
We believe that the diversity of our fellows, residents, medical students, staff and faculty is fundamental to ensuring that all our patients and families receive the highest-quality care. We aim to create a community that encourages participation and connection, and values each individual’s unique contribution.
