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.
