To Candidates for Fellowship in
Adult Infectious Diseases

The Infectious Disease Society of America has compiled a guide describing the available fellowship training programs in Adult Infectious Diseases. The purpose of this guide is to provide information on the curriculum of ID fellowship training and on individual fellowship training programs. While space limitations preclude detailed descriptions of each program, the information provided here will serve as a starting point for gathering further data.

The American Board of Internal Medicine has developed criteria for certification in the subspecialty of Adult Infectious Diseases. 

The curriculum requirements for training in Adult Infectious Diseases were recently reviewed in a series of regional and national meetings of Infectious Disease Division Chiefs/Program Directors. The conclusions from those meetings are summarized here, and serve as a framework for using this guide and during your selection of fellowship programs.

This is an exciting time to enter the specialty of Infectious Diseases. We encourage you to approach members of the Infectious Disease Society of America at your institution or elsewhere with questions about the discipline. In addition, we hope that you will visit the programs in which you are the most interested, to provide the best possible perspective on which program is best suited to your needs.

Keith Joiner, M.D.
Chairman, ID/IM Training Program Directors Committee
