Infectious Diseases Fellowship


Welcome

The Infectious Diseases Training Program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine provides fellows with inpatient and outpatient training in the evaluation and management of patients with a broad variety of infectious diseases. Our two-year program trains physicians to become outstanding clinicians in infectious diseases. Fellows are also provided with an opportunity to perform high-quality research. Our program features experiences in three settings: an urban city-county hospital; a tertiary referral hospital; and a major pediatric hospital. The subspecialty training program is fully accredited by the American College of Graduate Medical Education, and fellows who successfully complete the program are eligible for the subspecialty examination in infectious diseases administered by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Fellows are generally admitted to the program after three years of residency in internal medicine.
