Microbiology culture testing

Medical Microbiology Fellowship


The Medical Microbiology Fellowship program is designed to provide in-depth experience and consulting expertise in the laboratory-based diagnosis of infectious diseases and to prepare the individual for a career in academic microbiology. The program is ACGME-accredited in all major areas of microbial identification and susceptibility testing.

The fellow will be responsible for designing and completing a clinical or basic science research project that requires application of microbiologic skills under the direction of a Microbiology Division faculty member. Successful fellows may be certified by the American Board of Pathology examination in Medical Microbiology. The core program is one year; an optional second year of research may be available.


MD applicants must have completed training in clinical pathology, or equivalent postgraduate training in an ACGME-accredited Infectious Diseases Program.
