Program Tracks

Infectious Diseases Fellowship: Clinician Educator Track

Fellows in the clinical track complete a two-year clinical fellowship, of which at least 18 months is devoted to clinical training. This includes approximately 15 months of inpatient consultation on the adult infectious diseases service (divided equally between UNM Hospital and NMVHCS, and one month each on clinical microbiology and hospital epidemiology rotations).

Outpatient clinical opportunities include an ambulatory care month with rotations through NM DOH Sexually Transmitted Diseases Clinic, the NM DOH Tuberculosis Clinic, the UNMH and NMVHCS Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy Clinics, the NMVHCS Travel Clinic, the NMVHCS Podiatry Wound Clinic, the UNMH Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic, the UNMH Renal Transplant Clinic, and the UNMH and NMVHCS General Infectious Diseases Consultation Clinics. Each clinical fellow is assigned a two-year HIV continuity clinic. Elective outpatient clinical opportunities include UNM Pediatric ID clinic and New Mexico TeleECHO Clinics (Hepatitis C, HIV and TB).

Elective inpatient clinical opportunities include UNM Hospital Pediatric ID consult rotations, UNM Hospital and NMVHCS Antimicrobial Stewardship rotation, and the opportunity to spend one month with the transplant ID service at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas.

During the remaining months, clinical track fellows are expected to pursue scholarly activity. Examples of the latter include investigation of nosocomial infections, chart reviews or case reports with a review of the literature, and participation in clinical research studies.
