Infectious Diseases Fellowship
The Infectious Diseases Fellowship program at West Virginia University is an ACGME-accredited two-year program that accepts two fellows per year. Maintaining a balance of clinical care, education , and research opportunities, our faculty members guide fellows in becoming compassionate and competent clinicians in Infectious Diseases. Fellows undergo four-week block rotations including inpatient consults, rotations in Microbiology and Antimicrobial Stewardship/Infection Control, electives, and research. Primary training takes place at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, a 690-bed referral center, as well as the WVU Positive Health Clinic, which offers HIV care to patients in 33 counties of northern West Virginia. As a quaternary referral center for West Virginia and surrounding states, fellows have the opportunity to assist and engage with diverse groups of patients including immunocompromised hosts, infections associated with injection drug use and much more.
