Welcome to the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program in the department of pediatrics at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. This program is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME.

Our program is part of the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville division of pediatric infectious diseases and immunology, the only comprehensive pediatric infectious diseases service provider in Northeast Florida.

Our 3-year program offers outstanding training that will prepare fellows for academic positions in this field. It encourages and facilitates the expansion of knowledge through our clinically-oriented training with its rich inpatient and outpatient experiences. Fellows interact with patients at two different medical facilities, providing a very diverse patient population with a wide range of infectious diseases. Clinical research opportunities are abundant, with available opportunities in basic science research as well.

We would like to thank you for your interest in our program. Please explore our site and feel free to contact us if you have additional questions.
