The educational mission of the Division of Infectious Diseases (ID) is to foster clinical and academic excellence. Our programs offer students, residents and fellows unique and diversified experiences that prepare them for careers in academia, research and patient care.
The ID Fellowship Training Program provides intensive clinical and research training for developing physician-scientists. Graduates of the program are highly qualified to conduct research, provide clinical care, and assume leadership roles in ID. Our fellows typically go on to academic faculty appointments and/or positions in state, federal or international public health organizations. The ID Fellowship Training Program emphasizes both inpatient and ambulatory clinical training during the first year. The second and third years emphasize basic, translational, clinical or epidemiologic research at Weill Cornell Medicine, Rockefeller University (including the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center), Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, our international sites in Haiti, Brazil and Tanzania, or other affiliated programs. Fellow research training is supported by an NIH-sponsored T32 training grant. Additional training is 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, 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.
