About Our Fellowship
Fellows will have a vast array of research options from basic science to clinical/translational, quality improvement, or collaborating with the MCW Office of Global Health, and may seek out mentors from different departments and divisions at MCW including adult Infectious Disease. Fellows will have up to 23 months of protected time to work towards research goals. Ample opportunities exist to develop skills in grant writing and allow the fellow to be competitive for local and national awards during fellowship training.
Twice weekly conferences in collaboration with the adult infectious diseases fellowship program provides exposure to a broad range of foundational topics from antibiotic coverage or pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, to specific disease states, as well as a fellow’s case conference and research conferences. A separate robust pediatric ID conference occurs weekly in which every patient on the ID consult service is discussed. Additionally, the fellow will have one month dedicated towards becoming familiar with the basic principles and practice of clinical microbiology.
Our talented team of pediatric infectious disease providers are ready to help train you for a successful career in our field.
