Fellowship >> A Message From Our Program Director


Welcome to the 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 strong and diverse clinical experience with a depth and breadth of opportunities that is rooted in and supported by our vibrant community. Our goal is to train the next generation of diverse, outstanding clinicians, educators and advocates in the field of Infectious Diseases.

Our program offers an 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 with faculty who are enthusiastic, passionate and truly invested in ensuring the success of all trainees. Our aim is to develop a curriculum that meets each individual trainee’s interest within the broader field Infectious Diseases. Our training sites include the newly designed University Hospital (700 beds) and the Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital (250 beds) as well as others like the Texas Center for Infectious Diseases (TCID). These venues are well equipped in terms of patient diversity, resources and overall educations experiences to address the growing needs of our trainees and our community.

We welcome diverse candidates from across the nation with competitive academic records who are enthusiastic about Infectious Diseases and looking for a supportive program to complete their academic journey. I am excited welcome you in my role as the fellowships’ program director, and I look forward to meeting you!
