Fellowship Training Program

"Nearly 100 Infectious Diseases specialists have completed their fellowship training in our program. Approximately half have entered academic medicine and have become respected faculty members, clinicians, teachers, or investigators at their medical schools."

Message From Our Director

Daniel Kaul, MD - Director

We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about the Michigan Medicine Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program. Currently, the division consists of 40 faculty. The division provides both research-oriented and clinical training, and our goal is to train future leaders in both academic and clinical practice. We value flexibility, and the learning experiences are designed to meet the individual goals of each fellow.

Divisional training activities occur at both Michigan Medicine and the nearby Veterans Affairs Ann Arbor Healthcare System. At both institutions, fellows are taught exclusively by full-time members of the Infectious Diseases faculty, and fellows have the opportunity to follow patients seen as inpatient consultations in the outpatient setting.

Michigan Medicine is a large health system providing the full range of medical care as the major quaternary care referral hospital in our state. For example, we are a leader in both hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and solid organ transplantation, and our Transplant Infectious Disease service works closely with medical and surgical transplant services. In addition, Michigan Medicine has a Ryan White funded HIV/AIDS program since 1997, and currently we care for about 900 HIV infected individuals. Additional HIV experience is available at the Ann Arbor VA Medical Center.

We feel that is it critical that all fellows (regardless of their eventual career interests) receive core experiences in the following areas: Infection Prevention and Hospital Epidemiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship, HIV/AIDS, and Transplant Infectious Disease. To that end, we have created curricula in each of those areas to achieve core competence. Interested fellows can engage in additional advanced experiences as their interest dictates.

Many research opportunities are available for fellows interested in basic mechanisms of disease or those interested in pursuing more clinically-oriented projects. As the medical center is located in the midst of the main campus of the University of Michigan, research mentors may include faculty from the School of Public Health or other schools or departments throughout the University and Medical School. Please view this video and read this resource for further information.

Thank you for your interest in our program and please contact us if we can provide additional information.
