Fellows are required to complete the IDSA-sponsored Infection Control Lecture series on-line; this will generally be accomplished during a non-clinical rotation during the first year. Fellows are also invited to attend the weekly infection control meetings that take place on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 – 11:00 AM. Specific ongoing infection control issues are discussed and analyzed during this weekly meeting. Fellows are also invited to attend the monthly Infection Control Committee meetings during which general issues of infection control policy and procedures are discussed.
Fellows with a particular interest in a clinical area may arrange to spend an elective period at an outside institution. For example, several of our Fellows have chosen to spend time overseas in a developing country setting, to increase their experience of tropical infections.
