The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Reproductive Infectious Diseases (RID) Fellowship Program offers Obstetrician Gynecologists the opportunity to develop a clinical and research career in the subspecialty of Infectious Diseases. The fellowship was established in 2008 and currently the program accepts 1 fellow every other year. During the 2 to 3 year program, fellows will be expected to complete the required clinical rotations in Adult and Pediatric Infectious Diseases and microbiology. Fellows are also required to attend RID clinics, which include a GYN clinic for individuals living with HIV; a high risk obstetric clinic for individuals living with infections such as HIV, hepatitis and TORCH infections, a Pediatric HIV clinic; and an HIV continuity clinic. Upon completion of the RID fellowship, graduates will have an in-depth knowledge of infectious diseases, specifically those affecting women.
Prior to fellowship completion, fellows may consider a 7 day Exxcellence in Clinical Research Course. The RID Fellowship Program at MUSC offers a Master's Degree in Clinical Research or Public Health. The Master's Degree should be completed by the second or third year of fellowship training.
If you are interested in applying to our fellowship program, please complete an application before the March 31 deadline. All completed applications will be reviewed to determine your candidacy for a personal interview.
