Education and Training

The Division of Infectious Diseases is extensively engaged in the education and training of faculty, medical students, residents, and fellows.

Medical Student and Resident Education

The Division of Infectious Diseases has played a major role in designing and teaching microbiology and infectious diseases here at the University of Michigan. In addition, resident education has always been an essential part of our strengths from the first year the division was established in 1967 until today. Individual faculty score high on evaluations from both resident and students, and several members of the division have won resident teaching awards.

Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program

Our Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program is two years in length and is a combination of clinical and research training. We appreciate that each fellow’s goals are different and believe that the opportunities offered at Michigan Medicine, including the U-M Medical Center, numerous ambulatory clinics, and the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System training facilities, along with the division’s diverse programs, clinics, and elective opportunities allow fellows to meet those goals.

Conferences/Continuing Medical Education (CME) Opportunities

The Infectious Diseases division holds weekly grand rounds and conferences for faculty and fellows. The majority of these activities are available for physicians to earn CME credit. The University of Michigan Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. As an accredited CME provider, the Medical School can designate AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for university activities that meet ACCME requirements.

Other conferences/CME opportunities include:
