Diverse training sites, knowledgeable faculty and first-rate research opportunities ensure that your UB fellowship will thoroughly prepare you for subspecialty practice in infectious diseases.

Our subspecialty training program in infectious diseases fulfills all requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM)/Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). After satisfactorily completing our-two year fellowship, you will be considered board-eligible in the field.

The favorable faculty ratio in our division creates a nurturing, accessible learning environment. During your training you’ll work with 17 full-time faculty members who are committed to developing your expertise in this exciting and challenging subspecialty.

Many of our faculty have received national and international recognition for their groundbreaking clinical translational research. Our fellowship offers you nine months to conduct research with one of our accomplished faculty mentors, who will guide you through the process, from proposal to publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Our faculty’s diverse body of research means that you’ll embark on a project matched to your interests and goals.

Our clinical rotations provide a broader patient care experience than you’d encounter in many fellowships. Training in our system of affiliated clinical sites, you’ll work in urban hospitals, a world-class cancer research center and a specialty facility for veterans. At our immunodeficiency clinic, you’ll develop long-term relationships with your patients while learning state-of-the-art HIV care.

Combined, these sites enhance your skills diagnosing and managing a panoply of common and uncommon infectious diseases. You’ll care for immunocompromised patients, including those undergoing chemotherapy and recipients of solid organ and bone marrow transplants, as well as burn and trauma patients, among others. You’ll see infectious complications in all of the surgical subspecialties, including neurosurgery and hand surgery.

We welcome high-caliber residents from both osteopathic and allopathic schools of medicine.

Have a look around our website, and feel free to contact me with questions.
