Program description

The one-year Infectious Diseases Transplant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is designed to prepare physicians with prior training in infectious diseases for a career in academic medicine, subspecialty practice and/or hospital epidemiology, with a special focus on transplantation. The training includes both clinical and research components.

The Infectious Diseases Transplant Fellowship offers you:

  • Preparation for a successful career in infectious diseases in a group practice or academic center where transplants are performed
  • In-depth exposure to multidisciplinary approaches to a large volume of patients who require transplantation
  • Exciting research opportunities in the field of infectious diseases

In this post-subspecialty fellowship, you acquire comprehensive knowledge and competence in managing infectious disease-related issues in bone marrow/peripheral blood stem cell transplantation and solid-organ transplantation, including liver, kidney, heart, lung and pancreas transplantation.

This fellowship is offered at Mayo Clinic, a medical center where more than 1,000 patients receive transplantation procedures annually, including:

  • Pre-transplantation assessment and prophylaxis strategies
  • Infectious diseases occurring at the time of the transplant procedure
  • Long-term infectious diseases issues following transplantation
  • Application of advanced molecular diagnostic tools in the management of infection

You are required to participate in a clinical or basic science research project under faculty supervision. At the end of the research training, you will be conversant with basic aspects of clinical or bench research. Additional training in research is available for interested fellows.
