The educational mission of our division is to train future leaders in our field by fostering clinical and academic excellence. We offer students, residents, and fellows unique and diverse experiences that prepare them for careers in a wide variety of career paths including academia, research, and patient care.
Our ACGME-accredited ID Fellowship Training Program provides intensive clinical and research education for developing physician-scientists. Our fellows typically go on to academic faculty appointments, positions in public health organizations, or the pharmaceutical industry. In the first year, clinical training in both inpatient and ambulatory settings is emphasized. The second and third years allow immersion into basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiologic mentored research at Weill Cornell Medicine, Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The Center for Global Health with international sites in Brazil, Haiti, India, and Tanzania, and other affiliated programs. Fellow research training is supported by an NIH-sponsored T32 training grant.
Supplemental training is also available through Master's degree programs in clinical investigation or clinical epidemiology/health services research, and other specialized training programs in preventive medicine and public health.
In addition to the fellowship program, our division offers infectious disease and HIV/AIDS clinical electives for residents and medical students, and sponsors educational programs for providers at NYPH and in the community.
