Apply & Contact
MMC supports a total of two infectious diseases fellowship positions (one position per year). Candidates must have successfully completed three years of training in Internal Medicine in an approved allopathic or osteopathic training program and be board eligible in internal medicine.
Candidate selection is based on the quality of previous training in internal medicine, evaluations of competence by the internal medicine program director and other references, and the personal qualities of the candidate as evaluated during the interview process. The program is most interested in candidates who wish to go on to an active clinical practice in infectious diseases.
The Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at MMC uses the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ERAS is now accepting applications for the 2016 infectious diseases fellowship. Fellowship positions are offered through the Medical Specialties Matching Program of the National Resident Matching Program.

Interviews are by invitation only. We evaluate each application prior to extending an invitation to interview. A formal interview is required to be considered for our program. The committee will not review incomplete applications. Potential interviewees will be notified by e-mail or telephone. For positions beginning in July 2017, interviews will take place on the following dates: September 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, October 6th, 13th, and 20th, 2016.
