Transplant Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program

The Transplant Infectious Diseases program (TID) at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is now accepting applications for a one-year clinical fellowship in the care of the immunocompromised host. The MUSC TID faculty includes Dr. Courtney Harris (TID Fellowship Director), Dr. Alex Mills, Dr. Ruth Adekunle, Dr. Yosra Alkabab, Dr. Dan Wray, Dr. Scott Curry, Dr. Eric Meissner, and Dr. John Gnann.

MUSC-Charleston is ranked as the #1 and largest hospital system in South Carolina. Our center provides care for patients with solid organ transplants (heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas), LVAD/HVAD, hematopoietic stem cell transplants (SCT), and CAR-T cell recipients. MUSC is the only comprehensive transplant program in South Carolina and therefore provides the prospective TID fellow with exposure to over 750 organ transplants, 150 hematopoietic stem cell transplants, and 50 CAR-T recipients per year.

The program offers eight months of dedicated clinical time (which includes inpatient TID consults and elective time rounding with sub-specialty teams such as abdominal transplant, SCT, thoracic organ transplant, and antimicrobial stewardship) as well as four months of dedicated time for mentored research with the expectation of a published manuscript and/or abstract submission to a nationally recognized meeting prior to graduation.

Prospective candidates will also join multidisciplinary selection meetings for both solid organ and stem cell transplants and will have the opportunity for a weekly half-day TID clinic for continuity of care. Mentorship is a key component of the fellowship, with regular career-planning meetings, guidance about national societies, and education about other types of TID opportunities (protocol development, medical education, etc.), with the mission of tailoring each fellowship to the career goals of the fellow.
