Transplant Infectious Diseases Fellowship

Infectious Diseases Fellowship team

SMART = Stewardship at Moffitt for improving Antimicrobial use and Reducing resistance: Team approach (2019)

The Division of Infectious Diseases at Moffitt Cancer Center offers a one-year fellowship in Transplant Infectious Diseases (TID). To apply for the TID fellowship one should be board certified in General Internal Medicine and be BE/BC in Adult Infectious Diseases (minimum 2-year fellowship experience to finish prior to start of the TID fellowship). Moffitt is an NCI-designated hospital that was established in 1986. Moffitt will be the primary teaching site (10 out of 12 months/year) with rotations including microbiology, dedicated research time, exposure to robust allogeneic, autologous and immunotherapy services (such as CAR-T), as well as a TID continuity clinic. 

Tampa General Hospital (TGH) will serve as the site for solid organ transplant exposure via two months of clinical rotations and regular attendance at dedicated organ meetings for kidney, heart, lung and liver transplants. Both sites are high-volume centers with quality teaching opportunities and multi-disciplinary conferences. The TID team at Moffitt Cancer Center is a multidisciplinary team consisting of physicians and pharmacists. Our special interests include drug resistance issues in molds as well as antimicrobial stewardship issues in transplant.
