Fellowship Programs

The focus of the Duke Division of Infectious Diseases fellowship program is academic, emphasizing clinical and basic science research.

Learn more about our fellowship program.

Fellows have the opportunity to research subjects related to infectious disease and conduct their research in conjunction with some of the leading infectious disease experts in the world.

Trainees will undertake two years of full-time research training, either in a research laboratory supervised by one of the division faculty or by participating in formal course work in addition to the pursuit of a clinical research project.

Examples of infectious disease research tracks include:

  • Immunology
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Basic microbiology
  • Health care epidemiology and infection prevention
  • Staphylococcal and major invasive infections
  • Tuberculosis and mycobacterial infections
  • Transplant infectious diseases and fungal infections

Additional Fellowship Opportunities

The Duke Division of Infectious Diseases offers fellows a number of opportunities to specialize in a specific aspect of infectious disease medicine. We offer special fellowship opportunities in the following areas:

Interdisciplinary Research Training Program in AIDS

For fellows who are interested in training for a career in the growing field of AIDS research and treatment, Duke offers the Interdisciplinary Research Training Program in AIDS (IRTPA), which allows fellows to choose an AIDS-related focus of research and train with one of Duke’s expert AIDS researchers.
