About Our Fellowship

Clinical Experience
Fellows will rotate on the inpatient Infectious Disease consult service a total of 52 weeks divided throughout the 3-year training period. A broad range of patients with an immense depth of pathology will be evaluated in the hospital including but not limited to intensive care, surgical/post-surgical, transplant and other immunocompromised hosts. Fellows will also participate in outpatient clinic experiences (approximately 15-20 half-day clinics per year) that includes general infectious disease, HIV, hepatitis C and care for the international traveler. Fellows will participate in weekly microbiology rounds and in weekly conferences that review in-depth the management of patients and guidelines of Pediatric Infectious Disease.
Research Experience

Fellows will have a vast array of research options from basic science to clinical/translational, quality improvement, or collaborating with the MCW Office of Global Health, and may seek out mentors from different departments and divisions at MCW including adult Infectious Disease. Fellows will have up to 23 months of protected time to work towards research goals. Ample opportunities exist to develop skills in grant writing and allow the fellow to be competitive for local and national awards during fellowship training.

Academic Curriculum

Twice weekly conferences in collaboration with the adult infectious diseases fellowship program provides exposure to a broad range of foundational topics from antibiotic coverage or pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, to specific disease states, as well as a fellow’s case conference and research conferences. A separate robust pediatric ID conference occurs weekly in which every patient on the ID consult service is discussed. Additionally, the fellow will have one month dedicated towards becoming familiar with the basic principles and practice of clinical microbiology.
