Education

The Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases offers training for all levels of medical trainees. The goal of these programs is to provide trainees with a broad clinical experience encompassing infectious diseases of otherwise healthy children, as well as infections in children with chronic and/or immunosuppressive disorders. The breadth of clinical syndromes also includes tropical medicine given our geographic area and active travel within our community.

Clinical training is at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, and comprises both the inpatient and outpatient services. In addition, trainees learn about hospital infection prevention and control efforts, antimicrobial stewardship and diagnostic microbiology laboratory techniques.
