Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program

The Pediatric Infectious Diseases (PID) Training Program at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) is designed to prepare pediatricians for careers in academic pediatric infectious diseases.  The categorical program is three years in length, with the first year devoted to clinical training and the second and third years focused on research training.  Our program also encourages applications from individuals interested in combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Infectious Diseases training, as well as those interested in combined pediatric subspecialty training.

Individuals who have completed pediatric ID fellowship training and are interesting in pursuing specialized training in immunocompromised hosts and transplant infectious diseases should reach out to our fellowship program director for further information regarding this pathway.

Our program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Trainees who successfully complete the three-year fellowship will have met the training requirement to take the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) subspecialty certifying examination in PID.

As recommended by the Association for Pediatric Program Directors, Council on Pediatric Subspecialties, and as required by the Graduate Medical Education program for Boston Children’s Hospital, all interviews for our program for the fall 2023 application cycle will be conducted virtually.
