About the Fellowship Program

Fellows in Pediatric Infectious Diseases participate in a 3-year program that provides training to prepare them for successful careers in Pediatric Infectious Diseases and to assure their qualification for the American Board of Pediatrics certifying examination in Pediatric Infectious Diseases.

For additional details about our fellowship program, please download the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program Curriculum, Goals, Objectives, and Policies document.  

Mission and Overview

The goal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Training Program is to provide extensive infectious diseases-oriented research and clinical experiences over a three-year period that prepare pediatricians for certification as infectious diseases physicians.  Fellows spend four to six months the first year and two to four months in the second and third year on the pediatric infectious diseases consultation service at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and the remainder of the time working on a research project.

A growing number of Michigan Medicine off-site locations, as well as partnerships and joint ventures with other institutions, extend the range of training options both regionally and internationally.

The University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries and tremendous benefits to our residents/fellows. An overview of salary, benefits and employment eligibility is available on the GME Office website, under “Prospective Residents/Fellows.”
