Meet an Alum

Class of 2022
Post-graduate employment: Assistant professor, University of Minnesota Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases and International Medicine. Continues to work in global health research and education, and general infectious diseases.

Brad Smith, MD

Class of 2017
Post-graduate employment: Infectious disease practice, Sanford Health, Fargo, ND

How our program prepared him: "Surgical site infections and surgical pathology is a constant among nearly all ID physicians wherever they work....The experience garnered at UW in terms of surgical site and device-related infections left me well prepared to start on day one out of fellowship. The number and variety of cases you will experience as a UW ID fellow—from complicated neurosurgical cases to orthopedic infections—will shape a level of competence and confidence that allows you to pick up and start work virtually anywhere."
