University of Maryland School of Medicine

The University of Maryland is the oldest public medical school in the United States (and the 5th oldest medical school overall).

It was the first medical school to build its own hospital with the primary intent of clinical instruction.

The study and treatment of infectious diseases has been at the core of the University of Maryland School of Medicine since it even existed as a specialty.

Now, we have an internationally-recognized program known for training future ID physicians.

Wellness and Professional Development in Fellowship Training

Fellowship Wellness Kickball

The University of Maryland Infectious Disease Fellowship Program promotes wellness in fellowship training. We are committed as a fellowship to ensure fellows have a balance between training and their personal life.

Our extensive wellness focus includes two events per year. We have had a yoga class, a kickball game, and game night at one of our local Taverns. These events provide a wonderful way to bond with fellowship classmates.

Additionally the House Staff Association organizes four events throughout the year. The highlight event of the year is the annual Valentine's Day Ball at the B&O Museum.
