New York-New Jersey Intercity Rounds
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.
