UNC Infectious Disease Fellowship Program
The ID fellowship program at UNC offers a broad range of research and clinical opportunities, both locally and abroad, all supported by internationally-recognized faculty. We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our recruitment of fellows and throughout our division. Read our statement of commitment here.
The UNC Infectious Diseases Training Program aims to train physicians to become future leaders in the infectious diseases field. To prepare our trainees, our program offers world-class clinical training, protected research training, and individualized mentorship and career development.
Clinical training is provided through an ACGME accredited training program for ABIM subspecialty training in Infectious Diseases. Clinical training is primarily carried out at UNC with our outstanding faculty in the Infectious Diseases Division, which ranks #6 in the country in HIV care. Special opportunities to carry out ACGME approved medical training at international sites exist.
Research training is provided across a number of disciplines – with on campus and off campus partners. Basic and translation research can be pursued at the UNC School of Medicine with researchers in the Division of Infectious Diseases, the Department of Microbiology, or other labs within the main university, School of Pharmacy or School of Dentistry. Domestic and Global Epidemiologic and Behavioral Infectious Diseases research can be studied with mentors in the Division of Infectious Diseases or the Gillings School of Global Public Health (#2 ranked school of public health in the nation). Opportunities for fellows to obtain advanced (Masters or Doctorate) degrees exist.
Special attention to career development is ensured by strong one-on-one mentorships; research/career development supervisory committees established for each fellow in the first year of fellowship; and access to K30 Clinical Scholars Program.
The UNC Division of Infectious Diseases is committed to promoting equity and inclusion throughout our division and training program. We welcome diversity among our faculty and trainees, including but not limited to, diversity in gender, race and ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, and physical ability. Infectious diseases affect people from all backgrounds and the education provided in our training program underscores the principles of respect for all persons and the importance of addressing health disparities in order to improve health outcomes for the patients we serve. We promote an environment of inclusion and support within the UNC ID Training Program, understanding that our academic community benefits from perspectives of a diverse group of trainees and faculty. We adhere to principles of diversity and inclusion throughout the recruitment and interview process and encourage applications from individuals of all backgrounds, especially those from groups that are underrepresented in medicine.
The University of North Carolina School of Medicine and UNC Medical Center are committed to improving the health of all North Carolinians and strive to foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that enhances the learning environment and the clinical care that we provide to our patients. The School of Medicine seeks to create a culture of belonging where its students, trainees, faculty, and staff can thrive regardless of their race, ethnicity, creed, gender identity, gender expression, sex, sexual orientation, religion, physical ability, culture, socio-economic status, age, political ideology, national origin, or veteran status. The Office of Inclusive Excellence at UNC School of Medicine (Policy Contact: Stephanie H. Brown, PhD, 446 MacNider Hall, Chapel Hill, NC 27599; Phone 919-843-3100) has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the School of Medicine’s non-discrimination policies.
