During the two-year Infectious Diseases fellowship training program, the resident completes 13 four-week blocks of rotations each year which includes four weeks of holidays and 10 four-week blocks of pediatric infectious diseases spent at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

All trainees complete a minimum of six months in the microbiology laboratories associated with our program. One of these is in virology at the regional virology laboratory, housed at CHEO. The trainee is exposed to common bacteriology, mycobacteriology, mycology and parasitology.

There are two four-week blocks in adult infectious diseases, one at The Ottawa Hospital - Civic Campus and the other at The Ottawa Hospital - General Campus.

Each trainee completes a rotation in pediatric hospital infection control. The remaining rotations may be spent doing research and selectives/electives.
