The focus of the Duke Division of Infectious Diseases fellowship program is academic, emphasizing clinical and basic science research.
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:
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:
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.
Fellows interested in international medicine can apply to participate in the International Health Track where they will spend one to two years in Moshi, Tanzania, performing research about HIV infection and HIV-associated co-infections.
The division offers fellows the opportunity to specialize in medical microbiology. A core component of this program is to emphasize service, teaching, and research, so the curriculum is set up to foster these main areas.
