The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Infectious Diseases Fellowship is a two-year program that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Our goal is to train fellows to gain confident knowledge in managing HIV/AIDS and other complex infectious disease-related illnesses and to provide excellent care of all infectious-related issues in individuals and in the public health sector.
We accept two fellows per year.
Our program’s goal is to train fellows to become confident in management of HIV/AIDS and other complex infectious disease-related illnesses and provide excellent care for all infectious related issues from individual patient care to public health.
The first year of fellowship consists of 12 one-month rotations. The first four months are a dedicated microbiology laboratory rotation, in order to accommodate preparation for Internal Medicine board examination. There are eight months of inpatient clinical rotation divided between Baylor Scott & White Health and Central Texas Veterans Health Care. The remaining three months are split between research and outpatient rotations.
Fellows have one half-day per week dedicated to their continuity clinic. This is the case for the entire two-year training period, except for away rotations.
The second year of training consists of 12, one-month rotations. Four months are dedicated to inpatient care again divided between Baylor Scott & White and Central Texas Veterans Healthcare. There is a one-month rotation at MD Anderson for bone marrow transplant experience. The seven remaining months are determined by the fellows' interests.
Fellows continue their one half-day per week continuity clinic during the second year.
We have a variety of conferences conducted at noon. The two primary conferences are the weekly case management conference and core Didactic conference.
