Clinical Microbiology Pathology Fellowship


The Department of Pathology offers an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Clinical Microbiology. The next available opening is for July 1, 2019.

The Clinical Microbiology Fellowship training program is a one-year program designed for pathology residents and infectious diseases fellows from the U.S. or Canada. The objective of the fellowship is to prepare individuals for a career as a medical director of a clinical microbiology laboratory and leadership positions in industry.

The fellows have an opportunity to transition to second year of non-accredited research training in global health diagnostics. The objective of the second year is to provide interested candidates with a practical opportunity to develop, field-test, and measure outcomes of diagnostic tests for infectious diseases of global health importance.


Fellowship positions for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 have been filled.

We are still accepting 2020-2021 applications. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.


To apply, provide your CV, a personal statement describing your interests and your qualifications for the fellowship, and arrange to have three letters of reference sent.
