Pediatric Infectious Diseases Education

The Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease provides educational opportunities for medical students and pediatrics residents and fellows at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.

Medical students and residents have the opportunity to complete a rotation or conduct research with the division. Trainees meet regularly with attending physicians to discuss their projects. The faculty helps them to choose a research topic and organize presentations.

The division also offers a four-week pediatric infectious diseases elective for medical students that provides experience with both inpatient and outpatient cases. Students must complete the core pediatrics clerkship before enrolling. For more information, please contact Gail F. Shust, MD, at

The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship provides inpatient and outpatient clinical training and extensive teaching through grand rounds and conferences, as well as a didactic curriculum. Research opportunities include basic and translational science, as well as clinical trials for pediatric conditions including congenital and perinatal infections, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, HIV, and infections in immunocompromised children.
