Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship


Welcome to the Children's National Medical Center's Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship site!  We are very proud of our program and its unique training opportunities.  Our goals are to provide well-rounded training for fellows in clinical pediatric infectious diseases and in medical research. Successful completion of our ACGME-accredited program will provide the individual with the necessary qualifications for a position as a board-certified pediatric infectious diseases specialist. 

Our program consists of two tracks: a traditional Clinical Research Track, and a unique FDA Track, affiliated with the United States Food and Drug Administration.  Clinical training (see below) is identical for both tracks, with the tracks differing in research training focus (see Research tab above).  

Please explore the information below as well as the other tabs above to learn more about CNMC's Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship opportunities.

Bernhard L. Wiedermann, MD, MA
Fellowship Program Director

David Hyun, MD
Associate Fellowship Program Director

Note Added December 24, 2012:

We have an additional opening available starting July 1, 2013, for a first-year fellow in our FDA/CDER Track.  Please contact Dr. Wiedermann at for more details. 

Clinical Training

Clinical experiences for fellows occur at the Sheik Zayed Campus for Advanced Children's Medicine of Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC.  Children's Hospital is a 303-bed facility that has served the nation's capital for over 140 years.  Included in these beds are a Level IIIC Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, a Neurologic Intensive Care Unit, a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Unit, and a Level I Trauma Center.  We admit over 13,000 children annually and provide more than 350,000 outpatient visits per year.  Our Infectious Diseases service sees approximately 30 new and 100 follow-up visits monthly in our outpatient clinic, with over 100 inpatient consult visits per month.  We accept 1-2 new fellows into the program each year. 

Our infectious diseases practice reflects a highly diverse patient population, with children residing in the mid-Atlantic region as well as those originating or traveling from sites across the United States and the world.  We care for children with not only common pediatric infections such as pneumonia and osteomyelitis, but also conditions including malaria, typhoid fever, and other tropical diseases, endemic infections such as Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and infections in compromised hosts.  Our fellows actively participate in our Special Immunology Service, providing subspecialty and primary care to HIV-exposed and infected children.
