Welcome to the Vanderbilt Division of Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program.

Infectious diseases is one of the most exciting and challenging fields of medicine. The faculty members of the Division are committed to providing fellows with an exceptional fellowship experience to serve as the building block for a successful career in infectious diseases.

The Division’s strengths include NIH-funded programs in basic and translational research of HIV, H. pylori, clostridium and mycobacteria (including TB). Epidemiology and patient oriented research initiatives are also flourishing in vaccine development (for HIV and other pathogens), hospital epidemiology, and emerging/re-emerging infections.

The Division has a history of strong collaborations, including those with the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health.

Outstanding clinical programs are in place at the Vanderbilt University Hospital and the Nashville Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center. These include inpatient consultative services at each hospital and a dedicated Transplantation Infectious Diseases team serving both Vanderbilt and the Nashville VA.

Outpatient consultative care includes general infectious diseases, orthopedic infections, tuberculosis, and travel medicine. Division faculty and fellows provide longitudinal primary care at one of the largest HIV outpatient programs in the country, the Vanderbilt Comprehensive Care Clinic, and also supervise the inpatient team caring for hospitalized patients with HIV.

The Division is deeply involved in teaching of medical students, residents, fellows, and our colleagues in practice.

Thank you for considering the Vanderbilt Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program!
