Infectious Disease Fellowship Program
The Immunocompromised Host Infectious Disease (ICH–ID) program at UNMC focuses specifically on managing infections in patients who have undergone solid organ transplantation. ID fellows enrolled in the two year fellowship program available through UNMC and Creighton University have the opportunity to round with the ICH–ID service and gain experience in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of infectious complications that can occur in intestinal, liver, kidney, pancreas and heart transplant patients. During two one–month rotations with ICH–ID, fellows receive an introduction into immunosuppressive therapies and work very closely with the transplant surgeons to provide focused, high–level ID input into infectious problems occurring after transplant as a consequence of surgery and /or immunosuppressive drugs needed to prevent rejection.
