Directors Welcome

"We are committed to preparing our infectious diseases fellows for clinical and/or academic careers. Our division, as part of the Brody School of Medicine and Vidant Medical Center, is a leader in propelling rural health care in the region, and is committed to promoting the health and well-being of eastern North Carolina. Our trainees are exposed to a wide variety of pathology in a busy tertiary care center, but with welcoming and friendly faculty and staff to facilitate the optimal learning environment.

We are proud to offer a traditional ACGME accredited 2-year ID training program as well as an optional 3-year ID and Critical Care Medicine track. Both programs include the clinical and research training for ABIM sub-specialty certification."
