Infectious Disease Fellowship training at ECU Health Medical Center/ECU Brody School of Medicine is a 2 year ACGME-accredited program leading to subspecialty board eligibility in Infectious Disease.

The goal of this program is to produce clinicians who have a comprehensive understanding of the field of Infectious Disease and who are sufficiently well grounded in principles to practice it successfully. The program also aims to allow fellows to explore additional areas of interest that may be relevant to their professional interests and careers.

For individuals who also wish to pursue Critical Care Medicine Subspecialty Board certification, an additional 1 year of training through the Pulmonary/Critical Care Division following completion of the ID portion of the fellowship is available.
