Infectious Diseases

Infectious Diseases Fellowship Overview

Thank you for your interest in the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program of Prisma Health–Midlands/University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia. We offer an ACGME-accredited clinical infectious disease training. We have two tracks: A traditional 2-year clinical ID track and a 3-year Infectious Disease/Critical Care combined track. Our program is designed to prepare fellows for academic and/or clinical careers in Infectious Disease.

Training encompasses both clinical and research aspects of infectious disease, including hospital epidemiology, infection control and public health. In addition, our program is committed to developing the effective teaching skills needed to become an outstanding clinical educator. Trainees joining our program will care for a diverse population of patients at the Palmetto Health Richland Hospital, the William Jennings Bryan Dorn Veterans Affairs Medical Center and our combined Infectious Disease/HIV ambulatory clinic. Depending on the individual's preference, we provide the opportunity to gain additional experience in pediatric infectious disease, public health, antimicrobial stewardship, private practice infectious disease, transplant infectious disease, and international training. The Infectious Disease/Critical Care track offers additional critical care training coordinated with the ACGME-accredited Pulmonary and Critical Care programs.

Our mission is to provide an exceptional educational experience, helping you to grow into a competent and compassionate professional.
