Our pediatric infectious diseases fellowship is a nationally recognized, fully ACGME-accredited three-year program that provides fellows with a broad and deep clinical experience and strong grounding in basic or clinical investigation.

Program director: David Rosen, MD, PhD

The program structure is flexible and is tailored to suit each individual’s interests and experience. The primary goal is to prepare fellows for academic careers in pediatric infectious diseases. Since its inception, the program has achieved a 100% pass rate on the American Board of Pediatrics certification examination in pediatric infectious diseases.

Our divison was selected for the Outstanding Division Teaching Award from the SLCH residents in 5 of the last 8 years, including 2023. In addition, second-year ID fellow Elizabeth Daniels, MD, received the Outstanding Fellow Teaching Award from the house staff.

Clinical training is predominantly performed at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, a nationally recognized 455-bed pediatric quaternary referral center on the campus of the Washington University Medical Center that is among the nation’s elite children’s hospitals. St. Louis Children’s Hospital is consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report in all subspecialties.

A number of prior trainees have pursued American Board of Pediatrics-approved combined subspecialty training, including clinical informatics, rheumatology, emergency medicine, critical care and newborn medicine. We have also trained dual Medicine-Pediatrics fellows in adult and pediatric infectious diseases. 

Medical students entering our pediatric residency program with an interest in infectious diseases research careers can “fast-track” via the ABP Accelerated Research Pathway. MD-PhD applicants for residency who wish to pursue research-based faculty careers in academic pediatrics should apply through our Pediatric Physician-Scientist Training Program.

Our fellowship program currently accepts two fellows per year. J1 and H1B visas are welcome.
