Fellowship Program

Infectious Diseases Fellows

The University of California, San Francisco offers outstanding fellowship training in Infectious Diseases with great breadth and depth in both clinical infectious diseases and research. The program offers two tracks, a research track (four fellows per year) and a clinical educator track (one fellow per year).

All fellows spend the first year of the program immersed in robust clinical infectious diseases training. Following a two-week intensive didactic core curriculum, fellows rotate in four-week blocks on inpatient consult services at three UCSF-affiliated hospitals - UCSF Medical Center, Zuckerberg San Francisco General, and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Teams include fellows, students, residents, infectious diseases faculty, and infectious diseases specialty pharmacists. Longitudinal outpatient experiences are ongoing throughout the year in HIV clinics, General and Transplant Infectious Diseases Clinics, San Francisco Department of Public Health TB Clinic, and the San Francisco Department of Public Health STD Clinic.

Additional educational experiences include rotating on the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Consult Service at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and working alongside microbiologists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center Microbiology Laboratory. Fellows participate in at least two hours per week of teaching conferences. After the first year of training, fellows’ activities differ depending on the track chosen.
