Apply to the Infectious Diseases Fellowship

Application to the UW ID training program is through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)

Application Process

Applications for the Infectious Diseases fellowship are submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) through the Association of American Medical Colleges. Applications are accepted exclusively through ERAS. Applications are accepted through August 15 each year. 


The application process begins in ERAS as early as two years before a position is desired.

In mid-July, applicants can select the University of Washington Infectious Diseases program for positions opening in the subsequent year (i.e., applying in July 2017 for a position in July 2018).

Applications are downloaded from ERAS July 15 through August 15. If you have missed the August 15 deadline, please contact the ID Fellowship office.


After receipt and review of applications, those fellows with competitive applications will be invited to interview. 

Interviews are mandatory for fellow applicants who are seriously interested in the program. Interviews are arranged with 6-8 faculty, usually over one day. Those applicants invited to interview should indicate potential research interests and/or specific faculty with whom they wish to meet.

Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

The University of Washington is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. We are strongly committed to increasing the number of minorities entering careers in academic Infectious Diseases and we encourage applications by minority candidates to our program.

The UW Network of Underrepresented Residents & Fellows (UW-NURF) is an organization of residents, fellows, and faculty sponsored by the Office of Graduate Medical Education and the Office of Multicultural Affairs whose goal is to promote cultural diversity in medicine through community involvement, mentorship, professional networking, and recruitment of underrepresented minorities in medicine. If you have questions regarding UW-NURF, please contact our liaison, fellow Helen Stankiewicz Karita.
