Infectious Disease Fellowship

Welcome from the Infectious Disease Fellowship Program Director

Welcome to the Orlando Health Infectious Disease fellowship program. We are pleased that you are considering this ID fellowship program. Our program was accredited by the ACGME in early 2008, and our first 2 fellows graduated in June 2010. We have graduated 2 fellows per year since the start of the program.

Our fellowship's mission is to produce the best possible ID clinicians, who are able to excel in whatever post fellowship career they choose, whether clinical practice, an academic position, the military, or clinical research. We provide comprehensive clinical training, including specialized rotations in pediatrics, wound/HBO and cancer infections, plus experience in an outpatient private practice, public health, and travel clinics. Five-six months are protected time for research.

Orlando Health is expanding rapidly, and new programs and affiliations are constantly under development. Our program and Central Florida, in general, is an excellent place to train in the exciting field of ID. Cases from all over the world come to Central Florida. Throughout this site you will find information on the curriculum, hospitals, clinics, courses, and research opportunities available through our program.

We look forward to receiving your application to join us.
