Program Overview

The UPMC Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program provides an established educational curriculum with excellence in clinical care and training balanced with exceptional research opportunities.

The goal of our fellowship program is to train future leaders of infectious diseases in clinical medicine, teaching and research. The Division provides outstanding educational opportunities, including broad experiences in general infectious diseases in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and specialized training in HIV-AIDS, transplant infectious diseases, and surgical infectious diseases. The UPMC Health System is a leading health care provider, consisting of 16 hospitals in western Pennsylvania, which provides an extensive referral network for varied infectious diseases.

Our ID Fellowship Training Program is an ACGME-accredited program that received the maximum five-year accreditation cycle from the ACGME. In keeping with the ACGME requirements, all fellows must participate in a minimum 12 months of clinical training with the remaining time devoted to scholarly activity or elective rotations.

Fellows in our program can choose one of two different training pathways. The Clinician/Educator Pathway, which is a 2 year track for clinically oriented fellows, and the Research Pathway which is a 3 year guaranteed pathway for fellows interested in a clinical or basic research career.
