Division of Infectious Diseases & International Health

The UVA Division of Infectious Diseases & International Health has a long tradition of excellence in research, patient care and education. Division faculty are extending the tradition into new frontiers of research, and training a new generation of physician-scientists to meet the challenges of infectious diseases in an increasingly “flat” global community.

Research is supported by more than $29 million in annual extramural funding in 8 departments and 4 divisions in the School of Medicine, including global health initiatives supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the NIH, and carried out with partners in countries around the world, among them Bangladesh, Brazil, Haiti, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda.

Fellowship Applications

The goal the division’s training programs is to prepare students and fellows as independent investigators in the field of infectious diseases. Our philosophy is that interactions between basic scientists and clinicians in research and during training are essential for the breakthroughs and discoveries needed in this field.
