During the 2-year period April 1995 to April 1997, six regional meetings and one national meeting of division chiefs and program directors of adult infectious diseases programs in the United States were held to review fellowship training. Herein, we report data on job availability and job selection for recently graduated fellows. We summarize discussions on decreasing the number of fellows in training, and we outline suggested components of a core clinical curriculum and of three training tracks - clinician track, clinical investigator track, and basic investigator track.
