Department and Faculty
Testimonial from a past fellow
“I was drawn to UCLA because of the work ethics and camaraderie of the transplant ID team. The faculty and the past fellows are very supportive and provide remarkable mentorship to the incoming fellow. In addition, UCLA caters infinite opportunities and resources to their fellows. As a fellow, I am able to participate in didactic teaching lectures and conferences to enhance our knowledge in the field.
I like TID because I am inclined to assist in the care of immunocompromised patients whether it’s diagnosis, treatment, pathophysiology or creating awareness. TID is a unique and challenging field, but it offers infinite opportunities for growth and learning.
I am not a native of LA, but I immediately fell in love with the city because of the beautiful valley sunsets, numerous beaches, and places to hike. I like doing outdoor activities and the city offers numerous places to soak in the local culture. I live very close to major shopping centers, restaurants, grocery stores. I am also at a drivable distance to many major cities in California and neighboring states.”
