Infectious Disease Fellowship

Dr. Michael Young

The UK Fellowship Program in Infectious Diseases is a two year program designed to provide trainees with the necessary tools to launch a successful academic medical career. The UK program, directed by Dr. Michael Young along with Associate Director Dr. Nicole Leedy, fulfills the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine for certification in Infectious Diseases.

In addition to the clinical fellowship program, opportunities exist for graduate study and postdoctoral fellowships in the basic sciences. Research faculty in the Division maintain secondary appointments in several basic science departments including Physiology; Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics; Nutrition; and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and are able to train students in any of these disciplines.
