“One of the highlights of UNC is working with amazing ID physicians with strong partnership among multidisciplinary fields – to round with microbiologists, pharmacists, radiologists, and the different transplant teams. It makes a positive training experience when you are surrounded by people who will support you and are invested in your education.” – Daphne Villanueva, 2020-2021
Care and Antimicrobial Stewardship for the Immunocompromised Host

The Immunocompromised Host Infectious Diseases Program (ICH ID) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) is accepting applications for a one-year clinical fellowship in care and antimicrobial stewardship for the immunocompromised host from July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023. This fellowship combines strong clinical training in providing inpatient and outpatient consultative services for immunocompromised hosts combined with education and training in antimicrobial stewardship and hospital epidemiology in those populations.

Training consists of:

  1. ~6 months of inpatient consultation with UNC’s ICH ID Service, which provides care for patients with solid organ (heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas) and hematopoietic stem cell transplant, hematological malignancy, and burn injury
  2. Half-day per week providing outpatient ID care in either the Transplant Clinic or the Hematology Oncology Clinic
  3. ~5 months of service with the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and the Department of Hospital Epidemiology to learn about stewardship and infection prevention in immunocompromised patients
  4. 1-2 transplant ID conferences per week for formal didactic training

  5. Opportunities to participate in weekly selection meetings for organ and stem cell transplantation, take part in the Anti-infective Subcommittee of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, attend workshops on stewardship practices and infection control, and perform quality improvement or research projects

This position is open to physicians who will have completed an ACGME-certified clinical infectious disease fellowship or the equivalent by the start date of the program. We are able to sponsor J-1 visas as an ECFME non-standardized sub-specialty program for Transplantation Infectious Diseases. Salary and benefits are provided at the standard UNC PGY-6 trainee compensation level. No night, weekend, or holiday duties are required. Four weeks (20 weekdays) of vacation time are provided. Additional paid time off and reimbursement for registration and travel fees to one Transplant ID conference is provided.

Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest, a current curriculum vitae, and 2-3 letters of recommendations, including one from an ID fellowship program director, to anne_lachiewicz@med.unc.edu. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Please feel free to contact me with questions or to request further information.

I look forward to hearing from you!
