Welcome to the UCSF Fresno Infectious Diseases Fellowship. Full accreditation was granted by the ACGME for a two year clinical Infectious Disease fellowship. We had our inaugural class in July 2008. In January 2011 the ACGME ,after our first site visit, granted the program a 5 year accreditation with no citations.
Our primary training sites are Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC), the VA and UCSF main campus with one month elective at Kaiser Permanente Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Central California.
Our program includes clinical rotations, protected time in research and continuity care experience at the Special Services HIV Clinic. Our fellows are provided with a rich clinical experience in general Infectious diseases and care of patients with HIV and other immunologic disorders. Our fellows are also trained in hospital epidemiology, clinical microbiology and antimicrobial stewardship program.
Our faculty maintains a busy patient practice and the participating institutions offer the fellows diverse clinical experience.
The UCSF Fresno Infectious Diseases fellowship program admits two highly qualified physicians each year. Our program places equal emphasis on both clinical and research training. Our goal is to produce skilled clinicians, educators and investigators.
We are very excited about our program and look forward to training outstanding infectious disease specialists.
