Pediatric Infectious Disease

The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Children's Mercy has a track record in developing young physicians into excellent clinicians and clinical researchers.

Academic Curriculum

We pride ourselves in the development of a program that has kept abreast of the continual advances in pediatric medicine. We offer a comprehensive, thoughtful and rewarding education with varied experiences tailored to any fellow's interests.

Our program strives to maintain a balance between education and service, humanities and science, and personal and professional satisfaction. This balance will, we believe, encourage our fellows to think broadly while preparing them to make educated career choices that best fit their professional and personal goals.

Fellows are encouraged to attend various conferences in pediatric infectious diseases, monthly meetings with subspecialties, as well as meetings on ethics and quality improvement.


Fellows will be introduced to quality-based infection prevention and control research as well as lab-based microbiology research. In the second and third years of the program, fellows will obtain approval for a refined research project and then present at conferences, meetings and networking opportunities.


Our faculty recognizes that being mentors and training future infectious diseases specialists is a privilege. We will encourage our fellows to gain confidence and independence as they progress through training while providing a collegial educational environment that allows them to thrive.
