Associate Professor

Program Description

The Infectious Diseases fellowship is a two-year postgraduate training program that offers a collegial learning environment with great faculty mentoring and good work/life balance. In addition, Creighton will soon be offering a stand-alone one-year critical care fellowship. Combining the two-year infectious diseases fellowship with the subsequent critical care fellowship might be attractive if you are considering a career in infectious diseases critical care.

Overall Fellowship Educational Goal

Our fellows' experiences include clinics (continuity, HIV, travel), inpatient rotations, research, quality improvement, and telemedicine. We also provide educational experiences including antimicrobial stewardship, hospital epidemiology, and teaching. Ultimately, the program aims to prepare physicians for the practice of infectious diseases. In addition to a great training environment, our fellows enjoy high quality of living in the Midwest. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). It seeks to prepare trainees for certification in infectious diseases by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

Application Process

We accept applications online through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We participate in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP).
