Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Eligibility & Application


Graduates of a 3-year ACGME accredited residency program are encouraged to apply.  Fellows are selected primarily on the basis of likely success in an academic career in Pediatric Infectious Diseases.  Our program is primarily funded by an NIH training grant, thus applicants for NIH funded positions must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 

The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at the University of Minnesota utilizes the National Resident Matching Program's Specialties Matching Service (NRMP SMS).  The Program participates in the Pediatric Specialties Fall Match, (PSFM).

University of Minnesota eligibility requirements, as well as benefit and sample contract information, are available on the Graduate Medical Education website.
