Infectious Diseases Fellowship
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 U.S. Food and Drug Administration and a Traditional Track. Clinical training is identical for both tracks, with the tracks differing in research training focus.
