Program Description

The SAUSHEC Infectious Disease Fellowship is a joint U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force program that has been training Infectious Disease physicians since 1996. We partner with University of Texas Health San Antonio, the Infectious Disease Clinical Research Program, the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research Program, and the Defense Institute for Medical Operations. Our fellows and faculty are scholars who advance military and infectious disease knowledge. Our fellows and faculty are leaders and are actively involved in local, regional, and national efforts. The program is innovative and has annually implemented curricular changes to reflect the interest of fellows and faculty, while maintain the core curricular core components required The integration of fellow and faculty feedback has been a focal point for our program to avoid complacency and respond to the dynamic learning climate. This fellowship focuses not only on developing exceptional Infectious Disease physicians, but we also in developing clinical and military leaders prepared to recruit, train and retain future generations of Infectious Disease physicians.
