Infectious Disease Fellowship Training Program

The Medical College of Wisconsin provides comprehensive training in clinical aspects of infectious diseases and offers experience in research. The two-year ACGME accredited program is designed to provide excellent training for fellows, whether interested in clinical practice or academic infectious diseases. 

Clinical training takes place at three main facilities, Froedtert Hospital (FH), the Zablocki Veteran's Administration Medical Center (VAMC), and at a community hospital affiliate, St. Joseph's Hospital. During the two years, fellows rotate through the clinical services at these hospitals. The rotation at the VAMC includes significant time in the microbiology lab where fellows become adept at preparation and interpretation of a variety of culture techniques and stains.  Further clinical training includes regular participation in outpatient clinics at FMLH and VAMC one-half day per week and experience at two community STD clinics in Milwaukee.   

Fellows have the opportunity to participate in research projects both in the Division of Infectious Diseases and other departments at the Medical College. Ongoing areas of research in the Division include the study of immune mechanisms in fungal infections, antimicrobial clinical trials, expanded access and phase III HIV trials, and surveillance activities of the Infection Control Program.   For further information, visit our research page. 

Other integral aspects of our training program include regularly scheduled didactic conferences, journal clubs, clinical conferences, and a board review course. Fellow's performance is evaluated monthly by the supervising staff physician and every six months by the Program Director. Those successfully completing the program are presented with a certificate and board-eligible in Infectious Diseases.

Those interested in applying to the Infectious Disease Fellowship Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin should apply via ERAS.   We begin reviewing applications in December of each year and conduct interviews through April preceding the match.  Our program participates exclusively in the NRMP to select candidates.
