Department of Pediatrics

Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship


Program Overview


The Pediatric Infectious Diseases fellowship program at Baylor College of Medicine is one component of the largest pediatric departments in the United States. The Texas Medical Center provides an exciting, diverse and very stimulating learning environment for our post-graduate fellows in training.

The fellowship program is a three-year training program designed to prepare pediatricians for a career in pediatric infectious diseases. The first year of fellowship is primarily dedicated to clinical training at Texas Children’s Hospital. Years two and three of the fellowship program are dedicated to receiving basic, translational or clinical mentored research training. In addition to the clinical and research training, the Baylor pediatric infectious diseases fellows complete rotations in clinical microbiology/virology laboratory, retrovirology clinic, tropical medicine clinic, tuberculosis clinic, transplant infectious diseases clinic, and with the infection control and antimicrobial stewardship teams.
