All fellows are expected to participate in clinical teaching while on inpatient services. Our inpatient teams have a wide range of learners at any given time, and most work with a medical student and resident weekly. Other learners include ID pharmacy residents, PA students, and trainees from other subspecialties. As a fellow, you are seen as the leader and role model for the team.
Optional teaching opportunities during fellowship have also included:
- Medical student lectures in the Invaders and Defense course
- Morning report or other resident lecture in infectious disease
- Participation in the medical student Infectious Disease Interest Group learning series
- Presentations during the biannual Dennis G Maki Infectious Disease Update Conference
- Lectures/presentations for series related to a given pathway, such as the microbiology series presentation, transplant journal club session, MATEC case conference presentation
The Department of Medicine's Fellow Medical Education (FAME) Training Track trains fellows to become effective clinician-teachers and scholars.
Our department also offers several educator resources designed to address the issues and questions that educators confront regularly.
