Welcome to the Division of Infectious Diseases Fellowship
In accordance with the AAMC and the IDSA, the University of Utah Infectious Diseases Fellowship is planning an all-virtual recruitment for the upcoming recruitment season to start fellowship in July 2023. Interviews will be held Monday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, starting August 24, 2022. A total of 12 interview days will be held. The last interview will be Wednesday, October 5, 2022. For those that are interested, we will allow in-person 2nd looks to the program October 24-November 16, 2022. The in-person 2nd looks will not be considered in the ranking of candidates. If you have any questions, please reach out to the program coordinator or fellowship program director.
Our core program includes:
|12 Months||Consultation in Infectious Diseases||UUHC, VAMC, LDS hospitals|
|1/2 day||Combined HIV/ID Clinic||1st year|
|1/2 day||Elective Clinic||2nd year|
Available electives include:
- HIV Clinic
- Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) Clinic
- TB Clinic
- Travel Clinic
Our fellows also learn about antibiotic stewardship and de-escalation as well as using antibiotics wisely. The second year is mainly spent exploring either clinical or bench research with their chosen mentor.
Some fellows elect to add an MPH or microbiology fellowship after their Infectious Disease Fellowship training. Several fellows have also applied and have been encouraged to go on the 9 week Peru Gorgas course in Geographic Medicine and Tropical Diseases in their second year.
Our fellowship program is supplemented with regular conferences three times weekly, including core clinical infectious disease topics, clinical case presentation, and journal club. Fellows also participate in monthly microbiology clinical to bench correlation rounds with the microbiology fellows. Please see calendar on main page for upcoming events.
