Medical Microbiology Pathology Fellowship


The Department of Pathology offers an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Medical Microbiology. The next available opening is for July 1, 2022.

The Medical 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.

After completion of Medical Microbiology Fellowship, the fellows have an opportunity to transition to a non-accredited research training in global health diagnostics. The objective of the  research fellowship 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.

Stanford establishes PGY levels for new fellows based on the successful completion of all prerequisite training required for entry into your fellowship program. Stanford does not recognize additional training beyond the prerequisite training requirements when establishing the PGY level for entry into the program.
