Additional Opportunities

Fellows in all training tracks have access to additional resources, mentorship, and opportunities for professional development.

ID MAC Program

All Infectious Diseases fellows benefit from the ID MAC (Mentor, Advisor, Coach) Program which pairs them 1:1 with an ID Faculty for longitudinal mentorship throughout their training. Inspired by a similar initiative through the Internal Medicine Department, the ID MAC program provides trainees with access to personalized mentoring outside of the conventional assessment paradigm and is designed to assist fellows in achieving personal and career goals with a focus on wellness and transitions from fellowship to subsequent professional stages.

FAME Pathway

The FAME (Fellows as Medical Educator) Distinction Pathway is a year-long course that aims to enhance preparation for a career as a clinician educator through participation in sessions exploring learning theory, teaching skills, curriculum development, clinician educator careers, among other topics. Mentorship is provided by experienced educators from across the School of Medicine including from Infectious Diseases Faculty in educational leadership positions.

ID2EA Curriculum

The Yale Section of Infectious Disease established an Infectious Disease section Diversity, Equity, and Anti-racism (ID2EA) curriculum which aims to establish an educational roadmap to faculty and trainees to enhance their knowledge, skills, and attitude to address structural and cultural bias and racism, to provide equitable access and care to all our patients and thus improve their health outcomes and to enhance professional development and instill institutional changes to promote diversity and inclusion. Yale ID fellows are trained to consider social determinants of health as contributors to their individual patients’ disease and management and strongly encouraged to participate in this initiative.

For example, all fellow presentations in the weekly case conference include a description of the Social and Structural Determinants of Health, using a template with CDC definitions.

Global health opportunities

We offer several opportunities for fellows interested in public/global health through the School of Medicine and the School of Public Health. Fellows in all tracks have the opportunity to participate in a six-week global health elective in an HIV and TB clinic in South Africa (Yale/Stanford Global Health Scholars Program.)

Other opportunities include:

We strongly encourage you to consider Yale’s Infectious Diseases Fellowship program for your fellowship training If you would like to learn more about our program, please submit an application and consider visiting us. Faculty members and current fellows would welcome the chance to talk with you about the opportunities in Infectious Disease at Yale.
