Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship

NYU Langone’s Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases offers a three-year fellowship that prepares future pediatricians for an academic career. Trainees develop skills in infectious disease care, teaching, and research and receive hands-on clinical experience in a world-class academic environment. The fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

Fellows receive inpatient clinical training at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone and at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, the flagship pediatric hospital for NYC Health + Hospitals. These two clinical sites provide exceptional and broad clinical exposure. The division collaborates with all other general and specialty services at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital to care for complex and challenging cases. The division also collaborates with the NYU Langone Transplant Institute to provide comprehensive pediatric transplant infectious diseases training. Fellows participate in the inpatient and outpatient care of pediatric stem cell, lung, heart, kidney, and liver transplant candidates and recipients.

The fellowship provides a comprehensive outpatient experience that involves care of both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients, including at a multidisciplinary pediatric HIV clinic at Bellevue. Formal training for fellows includes clinical and diagnostic microbiology, virology, immunology, epidemiology, biostatistics, research design, grant writing, and infection control.

Conferences and Electives for Fellows

Fellows attend weekly pediatric infectious disease case conferences and didactic sessions, as well as regularly scheduled journal clubs. The Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases holds multiple joint conferences with the Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology in the Department of Medicine.

The Department of Pediatrics offers additional educational opportunities, including grand rounds, research in progress, and multidisciplinary morning report conferences.

Fellows complete monthlong electives in antimicrobial stewardship, infection control and prevention, and clinical microbiology and immunology.

Research Opportunities for Fellows

During the first year of training, fellows gain rigorous research experience alongside faculty mentors. In the second and third years, they perform laboratory-based or clinical research that is tailored to their specific interests.

Fellows also have many opportunities to collaborate with other research groups at NYU Langone and at other institutions. They are expected to present their work at local or national meetings and publish in peer-reviewed journals. Mentors and scholarship oversight committees work closely with fellows to develop their research skills and ensure their progress through the program.
