Infectious Diseases Fellowship Opportunities
July 30, 2012
At Duke University, we have a fully-funded opening for training in our pediatric infectious diseases fellowship, beginning July 1, 2013. This opening is made available through an NICHD T32 training grant, and the funding is guaranteed for T32-eligible candidates (US Citizens or Permanent Residents).
Fellows can train in one of two possible tracks:
- Fellows who have not already begun their fellowship will begin with the research component of their training (July 2013 - June 2015), and then complete the clinical year of their training (July 2015 - June 2016). All three years are fully funded. This will allow candidates to have more time to write an NIH K training grant during the last year of fellowship, building on a full, completed two years of research training. Clinical duties during the two years of research time are limted to occasional weekend call as well as some outpatient clinic responsibilities. Similar to our other fellows, the full and extensive research possibilities at Duke University are available to the candidate and a scholarship oversight committee will oversee progress and offer research and career guidance.
- Fellows who have already completed the clinical year of their pediatric infectious diseases training at another institution (July 2012 - June 2013) will be funded for the research component of their fellowship at Duke (July 2013 - June 2015). Duke is one of the largest medical research centers in the world, with a wealth of opportunities in clinical research, basic science research, translational research, and global health.
