  • Infectious Disease - Program Info

    The Infectious Disease Fellowship Program at Einstein Medical Center is a two-year ACGME accredited program accepting one fellow per year. The goal of the Infectious Disease Fellowship Program is to provide excellent training in the science and practice of Infectious Diseases through mentored relationships involving progressive independence for the fellow.  To accomplish this goal, the program provides training through classroom instruction, inpatient consultations, and ambulatory clinics.  Fellows develop clinical and intellectual expertise in the diagnosis and management of complicated infectious diseases in inpatient and outpatient settings. 

    The Division of Infectious Disease currently has five full-time faculty members. In addition,  an HIV-Board Certified physician provides formal instruction and clinical supervision in HIV medicine.  Three full-time nurse practitioners in the HIV clinic, four full-time infection preventionists, and a hospital-based Pharm-D specialist in anti-infective therapy work closely with the fellows and faculty.

    The program provides its fellows with an outstanding opportunity to learn the practice of infectious disease. Einstein has extremely busy inpatient and outpatient services, thriving programs in liver and kidney transplantation, a comprehensive cancer center, a Level I Trauma Center, first-rate critical care units, and the largest Emergency Department in Philadelphia (in excess of 90,000 visits annually).  Fellows are active participants in our antibiotic stewardship program and work closely with our infection prevention and control practitioners throughout the training program. Training in the care of HIV-infected patients in a Ryan White (Title III)-funded ambulatory HIV care clinic, elective opportunities in pediatric infectious diseases, bone marrow transplantation, and the Department of Health (STD's & TB control), and participation in a clinical research project.
