Fellowship

Infectious diseases is one of the most exciting and challenging disciplines of medicine. The OUHSC Infectious Diseases Training Program is dedicated to providing all fellows with an exceptional fellowship experience to serve as a foundation for a successful clinical career. Clinical training is provided through an ACGME accredited training program for ABIM subspecialty training in Infectious Diseases. Trainees in the fellowship program will complete at least two-years of training with additional training years requiring extramural support and approval by the Residency Review Committee. Three fellows are graduated every 2 years.
