Pediatrics / Infectious Diseases Fellowship / Application Information

Application Information

The Division of Infectious Diseases welcomes applicants for our fellowship program. We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and utilize the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to manage applications. ERAS opens in July for fellowship starting in July of the following year.


  • Candidates must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME accredited residency in general pediatrics prior to the start of their fellowship.
  • For more eligibility information, please read our GME Applicant Eligibility Requirements Policy.

Preference is given to applicants who have career goals consistent with those of the program, namely, to become the next generation of leaders in education and research in Pediatric Infectious Diseases.

Candidates are required, with rare exception, to visit Rochester for personal interviews. Expenses are the responsibility of the candidates; however the program will assist with arrangements to help reduce costs.
