The Application Process: Division of Infectious Diseases

Fellowship Application Requirements

We are seeking talented, motivated individuals who are looking for an academic, rigorous, and diverse clinical infectious diseases training program.  Applicants must be eligible to sit for the ABIM Internal Medicine Boards.  Only J1 visas are sponsored through MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.  We currently do not have the ability to sponsor H1B visas.  We look forward to the opportunity to meet you and the application process is described below.

Application for the July 2021 cycle

Fellowship application begins in July (when ERAS opens). Interviews will be scheduled on a Wednesday between September – October.

This application cycle, all interviews will be virtual via Zoom (new window).

How to Apply through ERAS

You should apply for the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Georgetown University Hospital through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ERAS is an internet-based application process developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges to transmit fellowship applications, letters of recommendation, Program Director letters, medical transcripts and other supporting credentials from applicants, residency programs, and medical schools to fellowship program directors using the Internet.  Upon receiving your application through ERAS, our program coordinator will contact candidates about interviews.  Interviews are scheduled during September and October. Visit the ERAS website for information about the process or to register.

The “Match”

The Georgetown Fellowship participates 100% in the match and is “all in”.  We feel that the match is the ideal opportunity for candidates to find the best training program for their needs and for programs to find the best learners for their program.  Once you have applied to the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program and interviewed with our faculty, fellows, and staff, we hope that you will rank Georgetown at the top of your list for training programs in Infectious Diseases. 
Georgetown participates in the Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) in Infectious Diseases.  This is a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for fellowship positions with program directors preferences for applications. Visit the NRMP website for information or to register.
