Infectious Diseases Fellowship

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Pediatric Infectious Diseases fellowship program! Our ACGME-accredited program educates physicians to become leaders in the subspecialty of pediatric infectious diseases.

Over the three years of your fellowship, you’ll receive education in the optimal care of children with unusual or complicated infectious diseases; develop skills required for teaching and leadership; and advance the field through research and educational endeavors.

To help you accomplish this, our program offers balanced, well-organized and progressive clinical, technical, teaching, research, and consultative experiences. Specifically, it encompasses basic concepts in immunology, epidemiology, public health, clinical pharmacology, microbiology and infection control as they relate to patient care and training in the prevention of infectious diseases.

Finally, you’ll work as part of a dynamic team in a vibrant city that is frequently ranked among the very best places to live in the nation.

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to meeting you!

Why Choose the UW Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship?

A World-Class Campus

The UW-Madison campus offers a unique opportunity for broad collaborations at a world-class education and research university. Our close proximity to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene provides opportunities to investigate challenging questions related to public health. Our fellows can find mentors and collaborators that are experts in nearly every related field – from arboviruses to zoonoses!

Collaborative Programs

Our collaborative education and clinical programs with our adult infectious diseases colleagues provide access to an array of knowledge. Regular shared didactic conference and case conferences, as well as our common clinic space, allows pediatric ID fellows to benefit from a vast collection of experience and expertise, including travel medicine, transplant infectious diseases, and collaborative care for HIV/AIDS and other immunodeficiencies.

A Diverse Patient Population

American Family Children’s Hospital and the UW School of Medicine and Public Health are regional referral centers that draw a diverse population of patients from five states. Pediatric ID fellows encounter patients with a wide array of clinical problems representing all pediatric and surgical subspecialties.
