In brief: No
Internal medicine and pediatrics both have infectious disease fellowships available after their primary training is completed.
This is not available to those completing residencies in family practice.

In brief: Infectious disease
Usually not. If the plan is to do infectious disease fellowship, it would be better to do internal medicine residency.
