Research scientist at work

Program Goals

Our program prepares individuals to be leaders in the field of Pediatric Infectious Disease. Our training program develops skilled investigators and clinicians through:

  • Individualized investigative and research training focused on diseases that affect children worldwide
  • Rigorous clinical training in a large tertiary care children’s hospital
  • Mentoring and career development

Research Training

Fellows choose to link with University of Washington faculty members at Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children’s Research Institute, the University of Washington, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute, or Center for Infectious Diseases Research. The fellowship program assists each trainee to develop research objectives suited to his/her interests that lead to the development of an independent research program.

Clinical Training

Fellows acquire clinical expertise in Infectious Diseases through direct patient care as a consultant, didactic teaching, and participation in conferences. Fellows emerge with extensive experience in management of a wide variety of infections, including bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections in previously healthy children, as well as surgical and immunocompromised patients.
