FELLOWSHIP VIRTUAL RECRUITMENT 2020

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 and advocates everywhere.

Recruitment in 2020 for our program will be held virtually as a means of ensuring all applicants have the same experience. We recognize the experience will be different from in-person recruitment, but we hope it will be as informative and as useful in conveying the fantastic culture of our Division and program.

We believe providing an optimal virtual recruitment experience for our applicants involves limiting the amount of time applicants spend on their computers the day of their interview. We have created videos of various activities of our recruitment day (such as the introduction of our program, welcome messages from Division leadership, our Tuesday morning infectious disease grand rounds, etc) for applicants to watch prior to their interview day. We have also compiled videos covering frequently asked questions and important aspects of our program. Each provides a unique view of the many positive aspects of training and working in our Division. Please ensure you review Dr. Melia’s Program Overview prior to your interview day, and any others that are relevant to you.

A message from the Infectious Disease Society of America, which is endorsed by our program leadership

IDSA, the ID Training Program Directors’ Committee, and all ID program directors understand that the fellowship application season falls during this complex and chaotic time. We also understand that some anticipated ID clinical elective rotations may not be undertaken, that anticipated research projects may not be completed, and that previously envisioned letters of recommendation may not materialize. We assure you that we will review all applications mindful of these realities, and we will not hold schedule changes imposed by COVID-19 against any applicant.

We strongly encourage anyone who is considering applying for ID fellowship training to apply, and not to withhold your application because of these concerns. We welcome your interest in infectious diseases and our program, and we look forward to meeting many of you on the interview trail this year, whether in person or remotely.
