Infectious Diseases Fellows


The major goal of our fellowship program is to train the next generation of academic clinicians and physician-scientists. Our program provides individualized training through close faculty guidance, flexible clinical rotations, mentored research, and didactic coursework. Graduates of the program are highly qualified for the practice of infectious diseases, bench and clinical research, and for leadership roles in medicine and public health.

We provide a wide variety of clinical training experiences in different venues, including: the inpatient consult services of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center (general and immunocompromised), the Hospital for Special Surgery (orthopedics, rheumatology), and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, weekly outpatient clinic experiences encompassing general ID, HIV/AIDS and travel medicine; clinical electives, clinical microbiology laboratory and hospital epidemiology rotations. Interested fellows can rotate through the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in the Bureaus of Communicable Diseases or Sexually Transmitted Infection and affiliated clinics. All fellows develop a research project in collaboration with one or more faculty mentors from Weill Cornell Medicine, Rockefeller University, or Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Fellows' research projects span basic, translational, clinical, and epidemiologic research in diverse areas of investigation. The majority of our fellowship graduates seek careers in academia, government, or industry.
