Director, Pediatric Infectious Diseases
Overview, Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship
The goal of our three-year Fellowship program is to train competent ID specialists through a broad-based experience in research, teaching and clinical infectious diseases. Our southern California location provides tremendous exposure to a variety of immigrant and through-traveler populations enabling diverse clinical and research opportunities. We also send Fellows to local collaborating institutions for increased exposure to other more focused areas of infectious disease including academic/university-based hospitals and LA County Public Health.
Our research strengths include disease epidemiology, vaccine evaluation and implementation, basic science in vitro and in vivo studies of Gram-negative pathogenesis, cost-burden/effectiveness studies, infection prevention and control, HIV clinical trials, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the brain in HIV-infected patients. Other research opportunities are available in collaboration locally with the Division of Adult Infectious Diseases at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (which includes national experts in endocarditis, fungal basic science and vaccine development, bacterial pathogenesis, and outcomes research) and elsewhere throughout the region.
