ACGME Adult Infectious Diseases Fellowship



The Infectious Diseases ACGME Fellowship Program of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is designed to prepare trainees for a career in academic medicine and to qualify for subspecialty boards in Infectious Diseases. The program is typically three years with the first year devoted primarily to clinical training and subsequent years almost exclusively to research. The program is committed to training the next generation of leaders in infectious diseases. We have a long record of successfully mentoring fellows in research projects that span the spectrum of infectious diseases affecting the global community. Combined with exceptional clinical training, fellows graduate from our program well equipped to begin the next stages of their careers. Important goals of the program are to take maximum advantage of the full range of training opportunities of The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (School of Medicine, School of Hygiene and the Hospital) and to retain flexibility to accommodate individual needs and interests. Since the founding of the Fellowship in 1981, our graduates have assumed leadership roles within academic medicine, public health, and industry.
