The Division of Infectious Diseases is committed to training our faculty, staff, and the next generation of leaders in infectious diseases through fellowships, global health education, specialized training, and continuing medical education. We often work in partnership with other Divisions, Departments, and Programs to offer comprehensive educational opportunities.
Infectious Diseases Fellowships
We offer ACGME accredited and ACGME equivalent fellowship programs for postdoctoral fellows, with an emphasis on research and clinical training. Both domestic and international students with the appropriate credentials are accepted into our fellowship programs. Candidates are encouraged to explore our websites for additional information.
Transplant and Oncology Infectious Diseases Fellowship
Since its organization in 2008, the Johns Hopkins ACGME equivalent TOID Fellowship has been recognized as a primary training site for TOID.
Adult Infectious Diseases Fellowship
Since 1981, the Division of Infectious Diseases has offered an ACGME accredited postdoctoral fellowship with an emphasis on adult clinical care and research.
Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship
This fellowship is offered by a separate Division. Those seeking Pediatric ID Fellowships are encouraged to connect with that program.
Our commitment to our fellows is underscored by their success rates in pursuit of NIH Mentored Research Career Development (“K”) Awards. Building upon a legacy of successfully launched research careers, 95% (19/20) of our fellows' K applications have been awarded since Dr. David Thomas was named division director in 2005. Through semi-annual meetings of our research review committee and a cadre of dedicated faculty mentors, we help foster the professional growth of our exceptional fellows.
Our fellows are able to avail themselves with tremendous resources both within and outside our division. Within the division, there are 77 full-time infectious diseases faculty members, including 39 women. These faculty bring in in $30,688,407 in NIH-supported research funds annually -- more than any other division within the Johns Hopkins DOM. And that doesn't include many other potential mentors within the Bloomberg School of Public Health, its Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, and other schools at our institution.
