The Infectious Diseases Division of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry established its Clinical and Research Fellowship Program in 1970. Since its inception, the Program has been a consistent source of accomplished clinicians and academic investigators in the field.
The primary goal of the Program is to provide fellows with optimal inpatient and outpatient training in the evaluation and management of patients with a broad variety of infectious diseases. In addition, the Program provides trainees with the opportunity to learn or augment basic research skills, and to conduct original laboratory and/or clinical investigation. This approach provides fellows with the necessary tools to develop careers in either clinical practice or academic infectious diseases.
Fellows are usually admitted to the Program after three years of residency training in Internal Medicine. The standard fellowship is for a period of two years required for board eligibility in Infectious Diseases. Clinical training is most intensive during the first year, and the second year affords opportunities to engage in laboratory or clinical research. Fellows pursuing academic careers may be offered additional years of training devoted principally to research.
