Infectious Diseases Fellowship

Thank you for your interest in the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). We offer a 2 year training program that prepares physicians to be excellent clinical and investigative Infectious Diseases Physicians.  We currently accept 2 fellows per year into our training program.

Our fellows receive excellent training in all aspects of clinical Infectious Diseases including HIV, solid organ and stem cell transplantation, orthopedic infections, and general Infectious Diseases.   Our primary teaching sites include UAMS and the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, but additional educational sites include the Arkansas Department of Health and Arkansas Children’s Hospital.  Weekly outpatient clinic for fellows is held at UAMS.  In addition, fellows gain experience in hospital administrative duties through involvement with Infection Prevention and Control Committees as well as Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs.

Weekly conferences:

  • Infectious Diseases Journal Club
  • Adult/Pediatric Infectious Diseases Case Conference
  • ID Fellows Core Lecture Series

Fellows are provided the opportunity for research and quality improvement in areas of interest with appropriate time and mentoring for projects.

Applications are accepted through ERAS and we participate in the NRMP Match Process for fellowships. We require a minimum of three letters of recommendation as part of the application.

Thank you for your interest in our program,
