Year 2: Differentiated Training Tracks

MGH Medical Microbiology

Our goal is to train fellows to serve as directors of clinical microbiology laboratories. Particular emphasis is placed on laboratory operation and management. Fellows will work in all sections of a microbiology laboratory as well as rotate on clinical services. Mentored investigation is particularly encouraged. Fellows spend one year in this track, generally during their second year of fellowship. Download PDF

MGH Infection Prevention, Healthcare Epidemiology, and Antimicrobial Stewardship

Our goal is to train fellows for leadership careers in Infection Control, Healthcare Epidemiology, and Antimicrobial stewardship. Fellows will develop core competencies in these fields working closely with mentors and as part of the Infection Control Unit and the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at MGH. Fellows spend one year in this track, generally during their second year of fellowship. Download PDF

Transplant Infectious Disease and Compromised Host Training Program

The goal of this training path is to train outstanding clinicians and investigators in the field of Infectious Disease of Immunocompromised Hosts including solid organ and stem cell transplant recipients and cancer patients. After the first year of general Infectious Diseases training, fellows in this track spend an additional 1-3 years of training that includes: 1) care for complex patients undergoing oncologic therapies, stem-cell and solid organ transplantation both in the outpatient and inpatient settings; 2) clinical and/or basic investigation into challenges in the care of this patient population (depending on the fellow’s background and interests); and 3) training in the design and conduct of clinical trials relevant to this patient population. Fellows in this track select to spend the majority of their time in a dedicated program at either the MGH or BWH-DFCI, under the mentorship of faculty members with specific areas of expertise. The training opportunities in this area available at each of the institutions. The interests of the faculty are described more below. Download PDF

HIV Clinician Educator (offered at MGH and BWH)

Our goal is to train outstanding clinical educators in the field of HIV medicine. The path may also be well-suited for a fellow interested in a career in HIV clinical or translational research who desires additional focused training in the clinical care of HIV-infected patients. Fellows spend one year in this track, generally during their second year of fellowship. There is one HIV fellowship position available each year at MGH and one at the BWH. Download PDF
