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 2021 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.
