What are the strengths of the Duke ID fellowship program?

Infectioius disease fellowship at Duke allows trainees to work with leading experts in multiple fields of infectious diseases. The faculty are very supportive and open to working with fellows on research projects. Duke also has a very strong transplant program, which exposes fellows to a significant amount of transplant-related infectious disease cases.
