Infectious Disease Fellowship

Welcome to the Infectious Disease training fellowship at the University of Kentucky!

Infectious Disease is a rapidly changing and diverse field that offers a wide array of clinical, research and public health opportunities. At the University of Kentucky, our mission is to train the next generation of Infectious Disease clinicians, clinician-educators and clinician-scientists to provide excellence in research, education and high quality patient care.

Our 2-year fellowship program offers robust clinical experiences in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.  The unique population in and around Kentucky provides a depth and breadth of disease processes to our facilities. Our fellows have opportunities to participate in direct care of a wide variety of infectious disease syndromes including complex bacterial, fungal and viral disease, HIV, Hepatitis B and C, sexually transmitted infections, travel medicine, transplant care, complex bone and joint infections, infection control and prevention and antimicrobial stewardship.  Additionally, our trainees receive 9-10 months of dedicated research time with the goal of completing and presenting scholarly projects. Fellows will attend at least one national meeting per year of training.

There is much more that our ACGME accredited fellowship has to offer. We encourage you to meet our highly dedicated faculty and fellows.

Thank you for your interest in our program!
