Welcome to the Geisinger Infectious Diseases Fellowship program!
Our program is based at Geisinger Medical Center (GMC), a community-based, medical school-affiliated hospital of over 600 beds with a level 1 trauma center, in Danville, Pa. GMC is the primary hospital for Geisinger, a primary chain of the hospitals and clinics across northeastern and central Pennsylvania. Geisinger can offer both rural (Danville) and urban (Scranton and Wilke-Barre) experiences, training in diverse settings, from smaller hospitals to a state-of-the art referral facility. Geisinger houses a microbiology laboratory with dedicated educators and cutting-edge technological innovation as well as a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) designated biocontainment unit ready to be used for patient care and training for highly infectious diseases such as Ebola, smallpox, SARS and other viral hemorrhagic fevers.
