Fellowship in Infectious Diseases and Tropical Pediatrics
This is a unique fellowship program that offers outstanding clinical training and encourages all fellows to engage in international health research in infectious diseases, vaccine development and public health. The fellowship is supported through a T32 training grant in vaccinology. The clinical training will take place at the University of Maryland Children's Hospital, a large tertiary level referral hospital with all pediatric and surgical sub-specialty services. Faculty members are committed to fellow education and professional development.
We offer outstanding opportunities for research in vaccine development and international health. The Center for Vaccine Development, which includes the Division of Pediatric Infectious diseases and Tropical Pediatrics, is an international leader in the development and evaluation of vaccines, with a focus on diseases that have the greatest burden among children in developing countries (http://medschool.umaryland.edu/cvd/). Fellow research ranges from basic pathogenesis, vaccine development, and immunology to epidemiology, clinical trials, and public health research in both domestic and international settings. This position is open to individuals who have successfully completed a pediatric residency program. Fellows who have completed one year of clinical training elsewhere and still need to fulfill their research requirements may also apply. US citizenship or Green Card is required.
