Infectious Disease practitioners from
the tri-state area attend the case conference series. Fellows are strongly
encouraged to attend this meetings in order to get exposure to a wide range of
cases. The Rounds are held at University Hospital twice per year; the fellows
should present a group of interesting cases seen during the academic year.
Discussions with experienced Infectious Diseases physicians from other
institutions will help develop analytic and critical thinking as well as
improvement of public speaking skills. Additionally, possible opportunities for
publication of case reports could be given.
