Welcome to the website for our ACGME-accredited Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship. Our program is part of the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunology, the only comprehensive pediatric infectious diseases service provider in Northeast Florida.

Our 3-year program offers outstanding training that will prepare fellows for academic positions in this field. It encourages and facilitates the expansion of knowledge through our clinically-oriented training with its rich inpatient and outpatient experiences. Fellows interact with patients at two different medical facilities, providing a very diverse patient population with a wide range of infectious diseases. Clinical research opportunities are abundant, with available opportunities in basic science research as well.

I would like to thank you for your interest in our program. Please explore our site and feel free to contact us if you have additional questions.
