Division of infectious disease

Infectious Disease Fellowship

Established in 1976, the MUSC Infectious Diseases Fellowship program is designed to provide extensive training in clinical infectious diseases. The Infectious Diseases Division sees patients at the two hospitals affiliated with the Medical University:

 Medical University Hospital, including Ashley River Tower (ART), and
 Veteran's Administration Medical Center (VAMC).

These hospitals, all located within easy walking distance of each other, have approximately 1,000 beds. In addition to the usual inpatient consult rotations standard in Infectious Diseases training programs, we offer a number of required and optional rotations to cover important areas in clinical Infectious Diseases:

 Travel medicine
 Transplant infectious diseases
 Sexually transmitted diseases
 Pediatric infectious diseases
 Research experience
 Outpatient antibiotic therapy, and
 Clinical microbiology
 PICC line insertion
 HIV transition clinic
 Antibiotic Stewardship
 Hospital Epidemiology and Infectious Control

Together the various clinical services and ample research time provides a complete and balanced fellowship designed for a physician interested in clinical Infectious Diseases. Mentored research, including participation in quality improvement, is a required element of training. This generally results in a presentation at a scientific meeting and we encourage first authored manuscripts. The program can be modified for someone interested in additional research experience.  Our fellowship positions are funded by the Medical University of South Carolina. Our program includes 2-3 subspecialty residents per year.
