Requirements

Application for admission to the UNC Infectious Diseases Fellowship requires completion of the ERAS application form which should be submitted with a curriculum vitae and a statement of the applicant's career goals and research interests. Special attention should be paid to the applicant's preferred training track with emphasis on research opportunities available at UNC. Three letters of reference are also required. Personal interviews are critical and will be arranged after review of applications and a preliminary telephone conversation with some applicants.
