Infectious Diseases Fellowship

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.  We recruit three fellows annually.

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 during ID Grand Rounds. Topics include: 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.
