Infectious Diseases Grand Rounds:

A weekly conference led by faculty, invited speakers from other institutions, or fellows.   Four times a year each fellow will be called upon to present a case discussion at this meeting (1/2 hour duration). This presentation will typically begin with a case, followed by a discussion of the relevant medical literature, accompanied by appropriate visual aids (usually computer generated slides and graphics).  For selected conferences, divisional faculty members present a Research Conference summarizing their own research activities.  Senior fellows are also expected to present a formal Research Conference relating to their own original work toward the end of the second year of training and a preliminary discussion of their research proposal during their first year. 

2013-2014 ID Grand Rounds Schedule

Infectious Diseases Weekly Report:

Discussion of cases seen on the University Hospital and VAMC Consultative Service during the previous week.  This conference is limited to the ID fellows, participating faculty, microbiology and ID pharmacy staff (usually 10-15 per week in attendance).  The fellows or faculty present cases as “unknowns” with discussion of the cases by faculty or, on occasion, fellows.

Infectious Diseases Journal Club:

Three fellows each month are expected to critique a journal article of importance in the field of Infectious Diseases.  By interaction and discussion of these papers, fellows  learn to review journal articles with regard to study design, medical statistics, medical economics, and medical decision making.  One faculty member assists the fellows in choosing the appropriate articles.

Weekly Fellow Lecture Series:

The fellows are exposed to a two year curriculum covering infections in immunocompromised hosts, hospital epidemiology, infection control, antimicrobial stewardship, HIV/AIDS, statistics, study design, and basic mechanisms of disease.  General topics in infectious disease and parasitology are included as well.  In addition, lecturers outside of the Division of Infectious Diseases (e.g. Pharmacy, Library Sciences) are invited.  During the first two months of the academic years, first year fellows are provided with a “nuts and bolts” introductory series.

2013-2014 Fellows Conference Schedule

Morbidity and Mortality Conference:

During this quarterly conference fellows will gain experience with the process of identifying cases with suboptimal outcomes and analyzing the case to determine factors contributing to the poor outcome.  Either medical knowledge or systems based teaching points should be provided at the conclusion of the case. Fellows will present at one M&M conference yearly and this case may replace one Grand Rounds fellow presentation.
