Additional time can be spent in the microbiology laboratory, pediatric infectious diseases and hospital infection control. Read below to learn more about each rotation

ID Faculty and fellows putting on PPEClinical Training

Our fellowship provides hands-on clinical training in general infectious disease, immunocompromised host infectious disease, hospital epidemiology/infection control, and antimicrobial stewardship. We also provide outpatient training in STI and general infectious disease. These clinical experiences provide a holistic training experience.

Research Training

In addition to the required ACGME Research blocks in Infections Disease, our program provides an additional optional research training year. As a part of research training, fellows have the option to apply for an MSCR or MPH Degree through the Gillings School of Global Public Health. Fellows have done research in many topics, some potential training tracks are listed below, but we strongly encourage research innovation and as such expect fellows to create their own research path based on their interests and experiences.

  • Epidemiology and public health
  • Translational and Basic Research Pathogenesis of Infectious Diseases
  • Clinical research
  • Clinical microbiology

Didactic Training and Conferences

Conferences and Didactic training are an important part of the ID Training Curriculum. We have multiple weekly and bi-weekly divisional conferences that ID Fellows are expected to attend. These conferences provide ample opportunity for lecture on emerging ID topics, as well as discussion with experts in the field. Conferences also provide an opportunity to learn about Infectious Disease researchers and practitioners both at UNC and globally.
