Fellows complete 12 months of required inpatient and outpatient rotations at our various clinical sites to provide well-rounded clinical exposure in all aspects of infectious diseases. The first year of training establishes a foundation of medical knowledge through robust clinical experiences encountered at each of our affiliated training sites. Specific rotations focus on sub-specialized training in the care of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis, tropical infections, general infectious diseases, and transplant infectious diseases. First year fellows also complete rotations in infection control, antimicrobial stewardship, and clinical microbiology to provide exposure to these important non-patient-facing fields early in their training. Second year fellows are afforded more flexibility in clinical rotations to participate in electives, independent clinical research, quality improvement projects, and other scholarly activity based on their individual chosen career paths.
