Our fellows are prepared to do anything! It is not surprising that our fellows successfully pass the Pediatric Infectious Disease Boards and  go on to work in highly competitive academic centers. Given that many of the top infectious disease investigators in the world were trained at UCLA, we know that our fellows will continue to astound us with their accomplishments.
