Research scientist at work

Program Goals

Our Vision: To develop the future leaders in pediatric infectious diseases research, clinical care, and teaching.

Our Mission: Our fellowship training program prepares individuals to excel as academic researchers and leaders in the field of Pediatric Infectious Diseases by providing exceptional research opportunities, diverse clinical and educational experiences, and individualized mentorship.

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.

Values

We believe that the diversity of our fellows, residents, medical students, staff and faculty is a fundamental element of our ability to ensure that all our patients and families receive the highest-quality care – no matter their race, ethnicity, language, literacy, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or finances. Our objective is to create a community that encourages participation and connection, and that values and includes each individual's unique contribution, in every aspect of our mission and practice.
