Infectious Disease Fellowship at Yale


Our training program is designed to prepare postdoctoral fellows for careers as clinicians, clinician educators, and investigators in the discipline of Infectious Disease. We offer a clinical/clinician educator fellowship that is two years in duration for individuals who intend to pursue clinical or educator careers in infectious disease. We recruit three fellows per year to this track. The first year is focused on inpatient ID consultation. We have innovatively introduced three, one-week clinic blocks during the year. First year fellows are introduced to all aspects of outpatient ID including general ID, transplant ID, antimicrobial stewardship, HIV, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PreP), HIV/HCV transplant, and outpatient antibiotic therapy (OPAT). In the second year of training, clinical/clinician educator fellows can focus their clinical and research efforts on HIV, HIV/Hepatitis C co-infection, transplant ID, and hospital epidemiology/antimicrobial stewardship. We also offer an academic/research fellowship that is three (or more) years in duration and includes one year of full-time clinical training and two (or more) years of clinical or laboratory research. We recruit two fellows each year for this track. Research training is supported by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health. Infectious Disease fellows may participate in the Investigative Medicine Ph.D. Program, the National Clinician Scholars Program, the Master of Science with a Concentration in Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases, and other didactic training programs within the Department of Medicine as part of their research training. Coursework is also available through the Yale School of Public Health.

The Section of Infectious Diseases at Yale School of Medicine is committed to the training of academically oriented Infectious Diseases specialists. The Infectious Diseases section at Yale provides unique opportunities for fellows to:

  1. Develop diagnostic and management skills of an Infectious Disease consultant
  2. Develop and complete patient-oriented research projects
  3. Investigate the pathogenesis of infectious diseases in laboratory or translational research projects
  4. Train clinician educators by participation in the FAME (Fellows as Medical Educators) program

Infectious Diseases research fellows at Yale are introduced to and can choose to participate actively in the research endeavors of many laboratories and clinical research programs. This page was designed to provide you with an overview of training in Infectious Disease at Yale. If you would like to learn more about our program, we urge you to submit an application and visit us. Faculty members and current fellows would welcome the chance to talk with you about the opportunities in Infectious Disease at Yale.
