Pediatric infectious disease fellowship program

The Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU offers a training program that is designed to produce experts in the area of pediatric infectious diseases.

The successful trainee will be prepared to pass the American Board of Pediatrics examination to become a board-certified PID physician. The program is designed to give the candidate a wide exposure to the principles and practices of both clinical PID and research techniques in PID. The program consists of three years in which the candidate is exposed to clinical material, didactic teaching, reading material and research experiences necessary to pursue a career either as a clinical or academician.

The mission of the Division of Infectious Diseases fellowship training program is to develop physicians who: 

  • Are clinically competent in the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases in newborns, infants, children, adolescents and young adults 
  • Have acquired the operational skills, professionalism and knowledge necessary to direct a pediatric infectious diseases service 
  • Possess the habits of lifelong learning and a commitment to advancing the science and art of infectious diseases medicine through research and scholarship 
  • Have the knowledge and skills required to succeed in an academic health care setting
