Our program is designed to train academic physicians who are at the forefront in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Pediatric Infectious Disease. Our fellows are trained to provide exceptional clinical care to highly complicated patients, to be skilled medical educators, and to produce quality research to enhance the field of medicine. At the completion of this training program, the trainee will have the potential, abilities and expectation to thrive in an academic and/or tertiary care pediatric environment.
