Thank you for your interest in the Lyme and Tickborne Disease Fellowship Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The Johns Hopkins Medicine Lyme Disease Research Center has established a fellowship training program to meet the growing need for a highly skilled clinical and research physician workforce in Lyme and other tickborne diseases. This is the first Internal Medicine Lyme Disease Fellowship Program in the world.
A distinct feature of this physician scientist training program is our collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health which will enable fellows to pursue a fully funded Master’s degree or certificate in Epidemiology and Clinical Research.
Fellowships are rigorous and intensive educational experiences in the advanced training phase of a physician specialist. Since its founding, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has attracted national and international candidates to its array of specialty and advanced fellowship programs. Among the benefits of these immersive training experiences is the ability to strengthen a field, bring novel and “out of the box” ideas to scientific inquiry, and offer greater access to specialists for patients.
Candidates for the fellowship have completed a residency training program in internal medicine, family medicine, or neurology, and will be board eligible in their field. Fellows will be charged with developing ground-breaking research projects that will ultimately improve Lyme and tickborne disease understanding and the care of patients. Once Lyme Disease Research Center fellows have successfully completed the two year training period, they will have the ability to synergize leading-edge Lyme disease research with the practice of evidence-based, compassionate patient care and successfully transition into leadership positions in medicine. The Center’s fellows will develop the ability to meet the unique care needs of Lyme and tick borne disease patients.
Please refer to the list below of documents we require as part of the application.
Interested candidates may contact the Lyme Disease Research Center at 410-616-7596 for additional information.
Our commitment as a Faculty is to invest in the development of our trainees and to promote the growth of the next generation of doctors trained in Lyme and tickborne diseases. On behalf of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Lyme Disease Research Center I wish you every success with your application.
Very truly yours,
