The Infectious Disease Fellowship Program at the University of Utah School of Medicine is a 2-year ACGME accredited clinical and research training program.
During the two year program, fellows get a well-rounded clinical education in general infectious diseases, HIV, immunocompromised hosts, transplant infectious diseases, epidemiology, and antibiotic stewardship at University of Utah Health Center (UUHC), the Salt Lake City Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), and LDS hospitals. They also are trained to embark on a fruitful research career.
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.
Additional Training Opportunities
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.
