Information for Applicants

Thank you for your interest in the NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP)/Weill Cornell Medicine’s Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program. Our program is designed to train academic physicians for positions which combine clinical practice with research (laboratory, clinical or epidemiological) or public health. We value the multicultural diversity that defines New York City in our training program and the full spectrum of conditions and diseases that is unparalleled anywhere in the world. 

For additional information, please explore our division's website, which highlights the clinical, research, and supplemental training opportunities that our program offers including a more detailed description of the training program, a sample schedule, a description of conferences, and summaries of our faculty and fellow research interests, recent publications, and current grants.

All applications for our program should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Applications Service (ERAS). In general, applicants shall be U.S. citizens or green card holders because of our funding sources for trainees. Occasionally, J or O visas can be accommodated. Preference is given to candidates seeking three years of training. Fellows are eligible to sit on the Boards in the Subspecialty of Infectious Diseases after the second year of training.

In accordance with recommendations from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM), and the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), all interviews will be conducted virtually for the 2023 interview season. Interview invitations will be emailed to applicants in late July/early August and virtual interviews will occur on Tuesdays in September and October.

Applications must include the following documentation:

  • All required ERAS Application fields
