Fellow Education

The UT Southwestern Division of Infectious Disease offers a two-year Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program, which has a primary goal of training outstanding academic physicians. Fellows obtain extensive clinical experience and have an opportunity for in-depth study in clinical or basic research with the Division's 18 full-time faculty members, and in collaboration with faculty from other UT Southwestern divisions and departments.

Fellows and faculty participate in teaching and patient care at UT Southwestern affiliated hospitals: Parkland Memorial Hospital, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, Zale Lipshy University Hospital, and the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center. They also see outpatients in the Parkland Infectious Diseases clinic, the Amelia Court HIV clinic, and the VA Infectious Diseases clinic.

As part of their preparation for successful careers in academic medicine, fellows also conduct in-depth mentored clinical or basic science research that is expected to result in peer-reviewed publications and presentations at regional and national meetings.
