Our ACGME-accredited ID Fellowship Training Program is growing, now accepting three new fellows every July 1. The training program is two years in duration. While the first year is clinically oriented, our second-year fellows have the opportunity to pursue a variety of opportunities, including advanced clinical training, research, or the Diploma Course in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Traveler's Health (or MPH) through the world-renowned Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
We are proud of our reputation as excellent clinicians and educators, and strive to provide compassionate and cutting-edge care to our patients.
In the words of Francis W. Peabody, "One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient."
