The Infectious Diseases ACGME Fellowship Program of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is designed to qualify trainees for subspecialty boards in Infectious Diseases and to prepare them for a career in academic medicine. The program is generally three years with the first devoted primarily to clinical training and subsequent year(s) almost exclusively to research.
Important goals of the program are to take maximum advantage of the full range of training opportunities of The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (School of Medicine, School of Hygiene and the Hospital) and to retain flexibility to accommodate individual needs. The fellowship program began in 1981 and, to date, 81 percent of our graduating fellows are active academic Infectious Diseases investigators.
