Clinical Activities

The Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa is ACGME accredited for two years, at the end of which the fellow will meet ABIM eligibility requirements.  

Clinical training is concentrated in the first year of the program.  Clinical assignments occur primarily at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics (UIHC), with lesser activity at the Iowa City VA Health Care System which is located across the street.  Transplant ID and HIV Care, in addition to broad general ID training, are critical components of the fellow experience.
