Michelle Floris-Moore, MD, MS

Thank you for your interest in infectious diseases, an incredibly rich, diverse, and rewarding specialty. As is evidenced by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the bounds of our specialty know no limits, spanning pathogenesis, clinical care, disaster planning, infection control and prevention, immunology and vaccine development, public health, social determinants of health, diagnostic testing, and communication skills. While the task is daunting, we will overcome this pandemic, in large part thanks to the tireless efforts of Infectious Diseases experts everywhere.

We understand that the fellowship application season this year continues to experience the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including disruptions in clinical rotations and limitations on travel plans.  We assure you that we will keep these realities in mind when reviewing your application and strongly encourage you to proceed with your application to our program this year.  In order to ensure that we continue to provide a uniform and equitable interview process for all applicants, we will be conducting all interviews virtually this year. We will strive to provide you with an optimal interview experience that includes all relevant information about our program, as well as opportunities to interact with our faculty and fellows. We welcome your interest in the UNC ID Fellowship program and look forward to meeting you virtually.

Diversity Equity and Inclusion

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.
