Program Overview

The University of California, San Francisco offers outstanding fellowship training in Infectious Diseases.

Our goal is to train leaders in the field of infectious diseases. We define leaders broadly, including in research, public health, global health, infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship, clinical ID, and medical education. We strive to build a diverse program to match the mix of our patient population and bring in varied perspectives to our patient care and research programs. The three main pillars of our training program are:

Clinical learning occurs through complementary experiences at our three main sites - UCSF Medical Center, Zuckerberg San Francisco General, and San Francisco VA Medical Center. 

Research is supported through multiple NIH sponsored training grants (T32s). Research options are extensive and include opportunities in global health (in particular HIV, TB, and malaria), public health, immunology, microbial pathogenesis, antimicrobial stewardship, molecular diagnostics, transplant ID, medical education, and many others.

Mentorship is critical to the success of our fellows. Fellows are provided faculty coaches in their first year and in their later years have both dedicated research mentors as well as additional career mentors.

To help each fellow achieve their goals, we offer many different training tracksThese include both research and clinical pathways.
