Infectious Diseases Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The goals of The Mount Sinai Hospital Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program are to provide comprehensive training in the principles and practice of infectious diseases and to prepare our fellows for academic careers in clinical practice, research, medical education, and public health. The mandatory two-year program offers extremely diverse training opportunities in general infectious diseases, transplant infectious diseases, HIV, microbiology, hospital epidemiology, infection control, viral hepatitis, and global health.

Additionally, a structured research program provides mentored research training tailored to each fellow’s specific interests.  Our program is able to provide fellows with opportunities in basic science, translational and clinical research.  To achieve our goal of developing future academic leaders in our field, we encourage additional years of research training and can offer complementary training programs in clinical research and public health. 

Our two-year training program is designed to offer our fellows comprehensive clinical training that covers all infectious diseases, in addition to training in antimicrobial stewardship and infection control. Learn more about our rigorous and thorough curriculum.
