Infectious Diseases Fellowship

Wiedermann B

Welcome to the Children's National Health System'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 three tracks, including two FDA Tracks affiliated with the United States Food and Drug Administration and a Traditional Track. Clinical training (see below) is identical for both tracks, with the tracks differing in research training focus (see Research tab below).

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

Sincerely,
Bernhard L. Wiedermann, MD, MA
Fellowship Program Director

Quotes From Our Fellows and Alumni

“Looking back on my training, CNMC/FDA was the perfect combination for me. I saw a tremendous volume of patients presenting with both common and uncommon infectious diseases and learned from amazing attendings on the wards and in the microbiology lab. Through my time in the FDA CDER track, I developed an understanding of drug development, clinical trials and labeling that has proven invaluable in my interactions with patients and in my pursuit of scholarly activity.” -Dr. Kimberly Martin, Alumna 2015

"DC is a cool city. It has a bit of everything; history, architecture, food, art, culture, politics, you name it. It also makes an interesting place to work. We have a fun group with lots of fellows and engaging faculty and staff. There is always the potential of a rural, urban, and/or exotic differential being on your list of patients to see daily. We see and do a lot, but never feel overwhelmed!” –Dr. Amol Purandare, Current Fellow
