Infectious Disease Fellowship

Pediatric Infectious Diseases & Global Health Fellowship Program

About Us

The pediatric infectious diseases & global health fellowship at Indiana University started in July 2015. We currently have two first year fellows who began their training in July 2016. Two additional fellows will be starting in July 2017.

Our fellowship program focuses on developing the next generation of leaders in pediatric infectious diseases research, clinical care and education. We developed the fellowship for physicians who are interested in a career in academic medicine. Our program is set apart by our focus on global health, our commitment to fellow education, and the variety and depth of the clinical cases. Individuals who share these interests are encouraged to contact us.

  • Training includes approximately one year of clinical training and two years of research. It incorporates well-organized and progressive teaching, research, and clinical experiences.

  • The educational program covers diverse topics relevant to infectious diseases including microbiology, immunology, epidemiology, clinical pharmacology, infection prevention, and antimicrobial stewardship.

  • The infectious diseases clinical service at Riley Hospital for Children manages children with a broad range of infectious diseases in both inpatient and outpatient settings. In 2016, our section performed over 3,600 clinical encounters, including approximately 2,400 inpatient encounters.

  • We place a strong emphasis on education, and fellows participate in the educational program for residents and students.

  • Fellows have a broad range of options when choosing their research program. The faculty in our section are leaders in global infectious diseases research, investigating topics such as malaria, HIV, and tuberculosis. Fellows can conduct clinical, translational, and basic science research within the section and explore options in the departments of pediatrics, medicine, and microbiology.
