UCSD Infectious Diseases Fellowship Homepage

​​​​​​​​Welcome to the UCSD ID Fellowship website.

​At the heart of our fellowship lies a vibrant community of expert clinicians, world-renowned scientists, and ​public health leaders, united by a shared vision to redefine what is possible in the field of infectious diseases. The diversity of our patient population, clinical experiences, research opportunities, and faculty mentors is unparalleled and provides for an incredibly rich training experience. 

Our mission is simple: to cultivate an environment that nurtures fellows' growth, creativity and excellence in clinical care, research, patient advocacy and public health. We aim to recruit, train, and advance a diverse group of physicians to reflect the demographics of our diverse patient population. We believe that every fellow brings a unique light to our constellation, contributing to a brighter future for all. 

As you navigate through this extraordinary adventure at UCSD, you will be surrounded by mentors and peers who are not only leaders in their fields, but are also passionately committed to supporting your growth. 

I hope that our website gives you a feel for our program and I look forward to meeting you soon. ​Sincerely,

Darcy Wooten, M.D., M.S.
