Infectious Diseases

Infectious Diseases Fellowship Overview

Thank you for your interest in the Prisma Health Infectious Diseases fellowship program in Columbia. We have two ACGME-accredited 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.

Training encompasses both clinical and research aspects of infectious disease, including ASP, infection prevention/hospital epidemiology, LGBTQ IA+ healthcare, refugee/survivor of torture care 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 Prisma Health Richland Hospital, the Columbia VA Healthcare System and our combined, onsite Infectious Disease/HIV ambulatory clinic. Trainees will work intermittently with a diverse, interdisciplinary team including the ID pharmacy residents/faculty and case management.  Trainees will have the opportunity to gain additional experience in pediatric infectious disease, public health, private practice infectious disease, transplant infectious disease, HBO / wound care, ultrasound, and international training. 

In addition to ID/CCM, options for a 3rd year in Hepatitis C, ASP, LGBTQ IA+ health and global health/MPH.  

Our mission is to provide a clinical infectious diseases training program with an exceptional clinical and academic focus on clinical research allowing growth of ID physicians who will inspire health, serve with compassion and provide culturally competent care to a diverse community (regardless of gender, age, race and socioeconomic status). Training will occur at our large, combined Ryan White/Infectious Disease/ Survivor of Torture Center which serves 8 counties in the Midlands of SC, the Columbia VA and our level 1 trauma/neurosurgical/cardiovascular tertiary care center at Prisma Health Midlands.
