Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program

The Infectious Diseases Fellowship at West Virginia University is a two-year, ACGME-accredited program with a 100% board pass rate. The fellowship consists of experience in Clinical Infectious Diseases including Ambulatory Care. Exposure to Clinical Microbiology and Immunology as well as extensive experience in Hospital Epidemiology is available. Research and Scholarly Activity are required.

The fellow is expected to be responsible, along with the attending physician, for teaching the students and house staff, as well as running conferences. Fellows are responsible for providing the consults, which are received from all in-patient and outpatient services.

Fellows participate in two half day per week Infectious Diseases Clinics. Both new patients and follow-up patients are seen. Fellows are trained in the work-up and management of numerous outpatient infections including fever of unknown origin, HIV infection, skin and soft tissue infections, Hepatitis B and C and a wide variety of other problems.

The major sites for clinical activities are West Virginia University Hospitals (Ruby Memorial Hospital), a 450 bed tertiary referral center and the Physician Office Center which houses the Infectious Diseases outpatient facilities.
