Transplant Infectious Disease (TID) Fellowship Career Development Program

What is Transplant ID?

Fellowship Director Joanna Schaenman with previous UCLA TID Fellows at the American Transplant Congress

Transplant infectious disease (TID) is a sub-specialty pursued after completing two years of infectious disease training in an ACGME accredited program. It’s a one-year, non ACGME training program that prepare fellows for a career in TID. With the primary focus on patient care, developing medical knowledge and applying clinical skills, fellows work with:

  • Solid organ transplant candidates and recipients
  • Stem cell transplant recipients
  • CAR T-cell recipients
  • Other immunocompromised states

Training sites

The TID fellow works primarily at the main UCLA Westwood campus at the Ronald Reagan Medical Center with few exceptions of participating in outside rotations/electives at the microbiology lab or organ procurement organization. This makes learning smooth and effortless with the flexibility of rotating at outside facilities depending on each fellow’s area of interests.
