Description

This course provides an opportunity for students, postdoctoral fellows, infectious disease fellows and faculty to explore issues at the interface between patient care, public health and basic research in the area of microbial pathogenesis.

All students are expected to attend and participate in each class scheduled. In addition to attending the course, you will be required to attend case conferences, visit clinical labs and go on ID consult rounds. A student presentation is required and is scheduled toward the end of the course.

Student Presentation Guidelines:
1. Pick an infectious disease from any of the various clinical exposures (lectures/discussions/case conferences/clinical rounds)
2. Address one aspect of the clinical issues regarding this infection: is there a diagnostic dilemma? Are the treatment options too toxic, too broad or too few? Are there resistance issues? Enlighten us regarding the problem and approaches taken towards resolution (in the literature).
3. Presentation should be 15 minutes in length with 3-5 minutes for Q&A.
