Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship
The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is designed to qualify post-residency trainees for board certification in pediatric infectious diseases and to prepare them for a career in academics and research organizations.
The training program is three years in duration with 12 months devoted to clinical training in infectious diseases. The subsequent two years are predominantly devoted to research with 18 months of protected research time.
The important goals of the program are to take maximum advantage of the breadth of training opportunities in the fields of Microbial Pathogenesis, Virology, Parasitology, Immunobiology, Vaccinology, Hospital Epidemiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship, and International Health at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, while at the same time having the flexibility to accommodate each individual’s career development plan.
In 2002, we established an NIH/NIAID-supported postdoctoral training program for research training of M.D. fellows in pediatric infectious diseases. All graduates of our fellowship have been successful in their careers, as evidenced by their success in the NIH career development awards, securing research grants from the NIH/foundations, and full-time engagement in activities at academic and/or government (NIH, FDA and CDC) institutions.
In combination with the Adult Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program, we also accept candidates interested in a four year combined pediatric-adult fellowship.
The Pediatric Infectious Diseases program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity
The Department of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Infectious Disease fellowship training program are committed to cultivating and sustaining an environment that fosters the development of diverse physician leaders who are committed to eliminating the nation’s health inequities through patient care, education, advocacy, and research. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of our fellowship program, department and school of medicine.
Through pathway programming, such as the Johns Hopkins Visiting Resident Elective Program to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Pediatric Subspecialties we aim to build a community that reflects the broad array of human differences found in our society at large.
