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, which includes researchers in academics and industry, public/global health leaders, health systems leaders in infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship, and clinician educators.  We strive to build a diverse program to match the mix of our patient population and bring in varied perspectives to patient care and research programs. The three main pillars of our training program are:

Clinical learning occurs through complementary experiences at 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 (T-32s). Opportunities are vast and include Global Health in HIV, TB, and malaria; Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis; Antimicrobial Stewardship; Molecular Diagnostics; 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 goal, we offer many different training tracksThese include research pathways and clinical pathways which each include subpathways as below.
