INTERNAL MEDICINE ELECTIVES - INFECTIOUS DISEASE

This elective is for students with an interest in learning more about how to diagnose and treat patients with infectious disease.  Students will also learn how to use antibiotics appropriately, prevent future infections, and manage the complications of HIV and other chronic infections.  The students will be members of an inpatient consult team comprised of a fellow and faculty from the section of Infectious Disease.  An intern or resident may also be a part of the team.  Students are expected to participate in daily rounds with the fellow and attendings and attend all ID conferences.   Students will be assigned a panel of patients from which they are expected to write daily progress notes and present on rounds.   A student panel should not exceed four patients.
