Application Requirements

Applicants should be either U.S. Citizens, U.S. Permanent Residents, or J-1 Visa holders.

Applicants should also hold an M.D., D.O., or M.D./Ph.D. degree and be in good standing in the medical community.  By the time of enrollment in our fellowship program, you should have completed an accredited internship and one or two additional years of internal medicine residency training.

A Physician/Surgeon's Certificate in California will require thirty-six (36) months with at least 24 consecutive months in the same program of ACGME (or Canada - RCPSC/CFPC)-accredited postgraduate training for all applicants regardless of whether the medical school attended was domestic or international.

Application Procedure

(Please apply for Transplantation ID Fellowship via the program coordinator.)

Our fellowship tracks participate in the National Residency Matching Program, and there are separate applications for each.

Tracks:

  • Traditional (Research)
  • Clinician Educator (CE),
  • Hospital Epidemiology / Infection Prevention & Control (HE/IPC)
  • Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP)

    Please submit the following required documents through ERAS:

    • Fellowship Application

    Interviews

    We invite candidates whom we feel will gain most from the training program to interview with us at Stanford.   We will prepare an itinerary for each visiting applicant, including meetings with faculty and fellows to acquaint you with the clinical and research opportunities offered in our program.  

    After reviewing the description of the program, you may wish to meet with particular members of the faculty or have in-depth discussions about a particular research area.  Please inform the fellowship coordinator about your special interests, and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

    In November, the faculty will review all of the documents for each candidate including impressions obtained from interviews.  Applicants will then be ranked with the National Residency Matching Program infectious diseases fellowship match.  We will be happy to provide information about the status of each person's application at any time during the process.
