Infectious Diseases Fellowship

The Pediatric Infectious Diseases training program is a three‐year program combines broad clinical training at The Nebraska Medical Center, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, and Creighton University Medical Center. Our goal is to prepare pediatricians for a career in academic pediatric infectious diseases.

Research may be pursued with any principal investigator affiliated with the University of Nebraska Medical Center or Creighton University Medical Center. A wide range of research opportunities are possible, including basic science, translational, clinical trials, and educational outcomes. Examples of research interests of the faculty include: molecular testing for enteric viruses; tick‐borne infections; animal models of central nervous system catheter infections; epidemiology and management of tularemia; HIV; and global health.

Clinical Services

Fellows obtain inpatient experience through the pediatric infectious diseases consult service. Consults are principally at The Nebraska Medical Center, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, and Creighton University Medical Center; however, other hospitals in the Omaha metro area may also be consulted.  Clinical experience is obtained through outpatient and other clinical experiences, including pediatric infectious diseases, virology, and immunology.

Applicant Requirements

Applicants must have completed residency training in pediatrics or medicine/pediatrics from an ACGME-accredited residency training program. Applicants from international medical schools are invited to apply, but a funding source must be identified by the fellow prior to beginning training.
