cwru-id-fellowship-tracks

ID Fellowship is a two-year ACGME-accredited program with an opportunity for a third year of training depending on the track a fellow chooses. The fellowship tracks are designed to meet all ACGME training requirements with 12 months of clinical experience and 24 months of continuity clinic experience for ABIM subspecialty board eligibility. The first year of training is highly concentrated on clinical training and includes nine months of clinical service, one month of a clinical microbiology rotation, one month of ambulatory rotation and a 0.5 day per week continuity clinic. Years two and three allow protected time for research under the mentorship of a faculty advisor chosen by the fellow.
