The Infectious Diseases Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine offers a remarkable blend of clinical training and research opportunities. Faculty are actively involved in clinical medicine, research and teaching.
Annually, two to three training positions are offered in our traditional infectious diseases training program and two positions in our immunocompromised training program, which is a joint fellowship between the infectious diseases sections at Baylor College of Medicine and MD Anderson Cancer Center. In the near future, the program plans to offer a one-year ID transplant track with MD Anderson.
We also offer one training position in a medicine-pediatric ID track. This is a joint track with Texas Children's Hospital.
Baylor ID fellows in either program have opportunities for international study through our established relationships with academic centers in Peru, Mexico, India, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Romania and Thailand.
The program's major goals are twofold:
- To develop in the trainee a high level of competence in diagnosing and treating infectious diseases
- To provide experience in clinical or laboratory research that conveys the educational value of scientific inquiry and launches the academic career of our program graduates
