Typically our fellows pursue research training in one of these main areas:

  • Basic/Translational Research
  • Clinical HIV Research (domestic and/or International) Global Health Transplant Infectious Disease Infection Control/Hospital Epidemiology

Fellowship applicants are encourage to pursue advanced research training as part of their fellowship through the Subspecialty Training and Advanced Research (STAR) Program. The STAR Program offers fellows either a Masters in Clinical Research or PhD degree or post-doctoral training for those who already have a PhD.

The first year of our program focuses on clinical training, while the second year and beyond is devoted primarily to research training. The UCLA hospital system and clinics offer comprehensive clinical Infectious Disease training. Fellows will be exposed to the entire range of infectious diseases in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised hosts, and our multi-site hospital system provides fellows the opportunity to experience a variety of patient populations. Our faculty provides research opportunities and mentorship individually tailored to each fellow’s interests and career goals.
