Infectious Disease Fellowship
The fellowship program in Infectious Disease at DHMC is designed to prepare internists for the diverse career opportunities in the field of infectious diseases.
Our Infectious Disease Fellowship Program offers comprehensive clinical ID training (General, Transplant, HIV, Critical Care, Orthopedics, International and Travel, Infection Control) and has many offerings for additional focus in research and academics. Our traditional fellowship is a two-year program with 12 months of clinical ID and the other 12 months doing elective and research, including international work.
The DHMC ID program is unique in that fellows have the opportunity to apply for combined ID-MPH-Preventive Medicine program in the Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency (LPMR) Program through the prestigious Dartmouth Institute. With this 3-year program, fellows are Board Eligible in ID and Preventive Medicine and get an MPH (tuition free), while being paid a fellow salary. The Preventive Medicine Residency offers fellows skills in quality improvement, leadership and population health where they lead a practicum focused on improving care.
Fellows also have the opportunity to explore a fellowship in Critical Care Medicine after completion of their 2 years of ID training.
We have numerous opportunities for research and training in Global Health. Our faculty are currently active in Tanzania, Rwanda, Haiti and Peru. Additional opportunities may be available through the many Global Health programs at Dartmouth College and The John Sloan Dickey Center.
New in 2019-2020: Fellows have the opportunity to spend time at the White River Junction VA Medical Center with excellent ID staff there. This adds an additional diversity of experience to the ID fellowship experience!
Former trainees are very successful, having 100% board pass rate in the past 5 years, with careers in academic and private practice all over the globe.
