We strive to achieve our goal preparing individuals for careers in academic medicine by fostering the development of expertise in a scholarly area applicable to infectious diseases. Our three-year subspecialty training program is available for individuals who have completed the PL-3 year of an ACGME-approved general pediatrics program or the PL-4 year of an accredited residency in internal medicine/pediatrics. The program offers a wide variety of both clinical and research experiences.


Established in 1982, Cincinnati Children's Infectious Disease training program was granted accreditation by the American Board of Pediatrics, Subspecialty Board of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and the ACGME in 1998, the first year accreditation was granted for this subspecialty. The program has earned accreditation from the ACGME every five years, and will be under consideration for renewal next in 2020.
