Thank you for your interest in the Infectious Diseases Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida. We're proud to offer an individualized experience designed to provide the best training elements necessary for you to become highly skilled in infectious diseases.
It is our mission to create an environment that fosters lifelong learning of infectious diseases for residents, fellows and staff, and enables excellence in the provision of patient-centered medicine and the ability to identify and answer fundamental infectious diseases questions in practice, research and education.
Mayo Clinic's Division of Infectious Diseases in Florida includes five faculty members and two clinical fellows, in addition to a cast of outstanding support staff that includes two medical secretaries.
Mayo Clinic is committed to providing the best innovative treatments to patients, translating research discoveries to improve patient care and training expert clinicians. The infectious diseases division exemplifies Mayo's commitment to patient-centered, integrated multidisciplinary teamwork.
During the two-year fellowship, trainees rotate on 12 inpatient consultative infectious diseases (eight general) subspecialty services and four transplant, six research, one microbiology, one travel and tropical medicine (at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota), two elective, and two inpatient rotations at University of Florida Health Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.
Mayo Clinic is one of the largest transplant centers in the country. Its infectious diseases fellows also gain clinical expertise in emerging subspecialties within infectious diseases, including HIV, travel and tropical medicine, infection control, antimicrobial stewardship, and general infectious disease.
Infectious disease trainees spend six months conducting primary research projects during the fellowship. The division provides an array of clinical research opportunities. Fellows are provided the opportunity to present their work at local, national and international meetings, and publish their work in peer-reviewed journals.
All fellows participate in a quality improvement project during their fellowship and are required to obtain the bronze certification in safety and quality improvement offered by the Mayo Clinic Quality Academy.
Fellows and residents have access to world leaders across many specialty areas throughout their training in Mayo's multidisciplinary care practice.
Whether you want to pursue a career in academic medicine or private practice, Mayo Clinic will support you. You'll become a part of the history and heritage of Mayo's Division of Infectious Diseases.
