The Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship at Mayo Clinic recognizes the central role pediatric infectious disease specialists play in global health, helping solve the myriad of challenges faced by children in low and middle-income countries. Our program is committed to helping train the next generation of leaders.
Mayo Clinic is a globally-connected institution with an extensive network of collaborations in clinical care, research, and education. Fellows will have numerous opportunities to pursue clinical, educational, and research experiences with existing partnerships in Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, and Central America. The mentored global health experience for fellows will be tailored to individual interests and career aspirations and can range from short-term clinical experience to longitudinal research and training designed to launch a successful long-term career in global health.
Global health is also local health. Our community has many opportunities to work with refugee and Native American populations and collaborate with public health partners around global health issues with local impact.
In addition to clinical and research opportunities, additional training is available in collaboration with our partnership with the University of Minnesota. Four-week courses occur annually in Minnesota and Kampala, Uganda.
Fellows may also pursue more intensive longitudinal course work and qualify to take the biannual American Society of Travel Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) examination that leads to a Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers' Health (CTropMed®).
