Training infectious disease specialists

The Prisma Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program has two ACGME-accredited tracks: a traditional two-year clinical infectious diseases (ID) track and a three-year infectious disease/critical care medicine combined (ID/CCM) track. Our program is designed to prepare fellows for academic and/or clinical careers.

Training encompasses both clinical and research aspects of infectious disease, including ASP, infection prevention/hospital epidemiology, LGBTQIA+ healthcare, refugee/survivor of torture care and public health. In addition, our program is committed to developing the effective teaching skills needed to become an outstanding clinical educator.

Trainees joining our program will care for a diverse population of patients at the Prisma Health Richland Hospital, the Columbia VA Healthcare System and our combined, onsite Infectious Disease/HIV ambulatory clinic. Trainees will work intermittently with a diverse, interdisciplinary team including the ID pharmacy residents/faculty and case management.

Trainees will have the opportunity to gain additional experience in pediatric infectious disease, public health, private practice infectious disease, transplant infectious disease, hyperbaric oxygen treatment/wound care, ultrasound and international training.

Our mission is to provide a clinical infectious diseases training program with an exceptional clinical and academic focus on clinical research allowing growth of ID physicians who will inspire health, serve with compassion and provide culturally competent care to a diverse community (regardless of gender, age, race and socioeconomic status).

Training will occur at our large, combined Ryan White/Infectious Disease/Survivor of Torture Center, which serves eight counties in the region, the Columbia VA Health Care System and our Level I Trauma Center, neurosurgical and cardiovascular tertiary care center at Prisma Health Richland Hospital.
