The Orthopedic Infectious Diseases Fellowship provides you with the opportunity to combine exceptional clinical skills with demonstrated proficiency in clinical or basic research. Clinical or research responsibilities will include an opportunity to focus on areas of special interest within orthopedic infectious diseases.

The one-year program consists of at least six months of clinical rotations (including one month of elective time) and up to six months of research. Candidates may take additional electives and/or more clinical rotations in lieu of six months of research, based on their career goals and approval by the program director.

At the conclusion of this one-year fellowship, you are expected to show competence in the six ACGME competencies.
