The goal of our fellowship program is to provide optimal training for pediatricians who want to become board-certified specialists in pediatric infectious diseases and pursue careers in academic and/or hospital-based practice. We offer a curriculum tailored to the individual interests of our trainees. A central focus of our training program is the selection of a strong mentor for each of our trainees to assure their optimal development and future success.
Following an initial year with an emphasis on the clinical practice of ID, our trainees focus on developing research skills from topics in the broad areas of infection prevention and control; antibiotic stewardship; transplant ID; or microbial pathogenesis. Our program is closely coordinated with the adult ID fellowship and we welcome applications from individuals trained in medicine and pediatrics.
Fellows are trained at New York-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and the Columbia University Irving Medical Center, located in upper Manhattan. The free-standing children's hospital, with 203 pediatric inpatient beds including 41 pediatric intensive care and 66 neonatal intensive care beds. The Children’s Hospital is part of a large medical center with more than 700 inpatient beds. It is adjacent to the extensive facilities of Columbia Health Sciences campus, associated faculty and students.
Our fellows also have the opportunity to obtain a MS or MPH in public health and are encouraged to attend lectures on the Columbia campus, including those offered through the Mailman School of Public Health.
