ID Fellowship Program


The Infectious Diseases (ID) Fellowship Training Program is a two-year ACGME-accredited training program. The mission of the program is to balance clinical and research activities and education to prepare fellows for their subspecialty boards in infectious diseases and careers as the next generation of academic infectious diseases physicians.

The ID fellowship program is robust with a broad range of research and clinical experiences for trainees. Our research strengths include a special focus on international research, premier HIV & TB programs, molecular basis of antimicrobial resistance, infections in the elderly, epidemiology of infectious diseases, microbial pathogenesis and tropical diseases. The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine allows fellows to obtain master degrees in Epidemiology or in Public Health. By offering a wide diversity of research, clinical and educational opportunities we encourage fellows to develop their individual interests in areas of research and a comprehensive clinical acumen in all areas of infectious diseases.

Strengths of ID Fellowship:

  • Diverse faculty and breadth of research and clinical experience
  • Multiple sources of salary support for fellows ( training grants, funding from clinical institutions, epidemiology degree track, special programs)
  • Focus in international research (TB, HIV, STDs, parasitic infections)
  • Premier international and national HIV programs (ACTU, CFAR)
  • Track record in training academic infectious diseases physicians

The ID Fellowship Training Program has attracted outstanding candidates who have emerged as leaders in the field. The division hosts national and regional continuing medical education programs and ID faculty avidly participate in UH and VA teaching conferences. Our faculty members consistently receive outstanding evaluations at all levels for their teaching and clinical service activities.
