The UCLA Multicampus Program in Infectious Diseases represents a recent merger of the UCLA Infectious Diseases Fellowship based at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica with the Cedars-Sinai/UCLA Multicampus Program in Infectious Diseases based at the VA Greater Los Angeles Health Care System, Olive View/UCLA Medical Center, and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
This newly merged program provides unparalleled clinical and research opportunities for incoming fellows. Fellows will be recruited into one of two tracks:
- Academic Research Track: UCLA provides a variety of different pathways for individuals interested in research careers through the Academic Research Track. The goal of each pathway within the Academic Research Track is to provide a longitudinal, mentored research training experience that prepares trainees for careers as independently funded investigators. We offer research training in a variety of areas including basic/translational research, clinical HIV research (domestic and/or international), global health, transplant infectious diseases, hospital epidemiology, antimicrobial stewardship, and health services and health outcomes research. Trainees can take advantage of a variety of departments, institutes, and schools with the biomedical and main campuses of UCLA.
- Clinical Scholar Track: This track is a two year program that is structured for fellows who aspire to more clinically-oriented careers in general and transplant infectious diseases, HIV medicine, viral hepatitis, public health, epidemiology, antibiotic stewardship, and infection control. Fellows in this track complete a scholarly project and are competitive for wide variety of positions in academic, private, and public health settings upon completion of their training.
All trainees in both tracks will have full access to the faculty, educational resources, research opportunities, and clinical experiences at all affiliated medical centers, which, in total, care for an extraordinarily diverse patient population within an outstanding academic environment, thus providing trainees with an exceptional experience.
