Program Overview

Welcome to the University of Washington Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program! We are delighted that you are considering a career in infectious diseases. Our infectious disease training program is among the oldest in the country with ID fellows training at the University of Washington since 1960. Every year, we have the privilege of recruiting and training incredible fellows from a variety of different educational programs. Over a two to four-year training experience, our fellows are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to become leaders in the field of infectious diseases through broad-based clinical training and clinical investigation. We count among our program alumni individuals who have contributed substantially to the areas of academic and clinical infectious diseases as well as public health.

Why train at University of Washington?

ID fellows are the focal point of our division.  We pride ourselves on providing outstanding clinical training through diverse clinical opportunities at 4 hospitals that include a catchment area covering Seattle, King County, Washington State and the WWAMI region. Our division is one of the largest in the country with over 100 faculty members who provide unparalleled opportunities to fellows as teachers and mentors. Faculty members include internationally renowned leaders in sexual health research, HIV prevention and clinical care, respiratory viral infections, and infections in immunocompromised hosts, to name a few. Additionally, our strong linkages to Public Health - Seattle & King County provide unique opportunities to work at the intersection of infectious diseases, epidemiology and public health. Our fellows have the opportunity to enroll in graduate programs to complement their clinical and academic training; many fellows have completed MPH and MS degrees at the UW School of Public Health during their fellowship. For those who are interested in a global health career, our program is closely linked with the UW Department of Global Health which provides research and clinical opportunities with international partners. Our fellows pursue projects in clinical investigation based on their areas of interest. The division helps make scholarly activity a priority supporting fellows in the presentation and publication of their research findings. We have a collegial and supportive environment in a thriving city in a beautiful part of the world. We welcome your application to our program.
