The Saint Louis University Infectious Disease Fellowship Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program aims to prepare our trainees for careers as infectious diseases subspecialists certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
Infectious Diseases Training
The duration of the subspecialty training is two years. It consists of clinical and research training. Additional research training is available. All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Interviews are scheduled by invitation from August to November. Fellowship positions are filled through The Match, National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
We are noteworthy for providing our trainees with a well-balanced clinical and research experience. The knowledge and experience gained from our nationally and internationally recognized faculty benefit our fellows and supply them with the ability to handle various cases and challenges. There are opportunities to participate in clinical trials, research, antimicrobial stewardship, and infection prevention. Our graduates have the expertise, skills, professional assurance and versatility to provide expert subspecialty care.
Medical students and house staff from internal medicine and pediatrics residency programs regularly rotate through our clinics. This affords our fellows with excellent teaching opportunities that also include participation in a variety of conferences.
Appointment to postgraduate training programs of the SLU School of Medicine is a full-time professional education commitment for the trainee.
This commitment extends to the full 52-week term of each trainee’s appointment period. Accordingly, the trainee is not to engage in any remunerative professional work (i.e. moonlighting) or to accept fees for services rendered to patients during the training program.
