A message from our Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our Infectious Disease Fellowship Training program at UT Health San Antonio. At UT Health San Antonio we support a two-year ACGME accredited fellowship program that is designed to provide fellows with a broad-based exposure to infectious diseases cases with the goal of developing outstanding clinicians and educators. South Texas is home to a vibrant community and plays host to a wide array of infectious disease training opportunities from endemic fungal diseases, mycobacterial infections including tuberculosis, nocardia, murine typhus and infections in the immunocompromised hosts.

Fellows and faculty participate in weekly case management conferences that consist of interactive case presentations with faculty, focusing on differential diagnosis and treatment. Also, fellows and faculty participate in weekly conferences that include Journal Club, Research, Board Review, Faculty and Fellow development, HIV resistance, and plate rounds. Faculty present core curriculum lectures weekly including: HIV series, Infectious diseases core series, Antimicrobial Therapies and Resistance, Microbiology, Travel and Tropical Medicine, Quality Improvement/Quality Assessment, Hospital Infection Control and Epidemiology, Immunocompromised Hosts, Hepatitis/Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Infections of the Reproductive Organs, and we also attend monthly a City-wide Infectious Diseases Conference.

First-year fellows have a continuity outpatient HIV/ID clinic at the VA and second-year fellows progress to a continuity HIV/ID clinic at our teaching hospital.

We offer excellent clinical experience within varied areas of Infectious Diseases including general ID, clinical research, patient safety and quality improvement, infection control, antimicrobial stewardship, transplant medicine, HIV care, travel and tropical medicine. There are diverse research opportunities and both clinical and laboratory research. Areas of study include fungal infections, HIV/AIDS clinical and immunology, Infection Control/Hospital Epidemiology and MRSA infections.We count on a team of faculty who are enthusiastic, passionate and truly invested in ensuring the success of all trainees. Our aim is to meet ACGME requirements while developing a curriculum that meets the individual trainee’s interest within the broader field Infectious Disease

I am excited to be in the role of the ID Fellowship program director, and I look forward to meeting you!
