Welcome to the Infectious Diseases elective rotation. As part of the course, you may participate in the Inpatient consultation service and/or the Ambulatory Care clinic.
Residents and students on the inpatient consultation service will be expected to perform thorough infectious diseases evaluation of patients in the hospital, attend conferences and lectures, and complete outside reading and self study. During the rotation, you will become knowledgeable and proficient in treating infections in the surgical, transplant, intensive care, OB/GYN, hematologic/oncologic, general medicine and HIV patients.
On the Ambulatory service, residents and students will have the opportunity to learn about general infectious diseases, travel medicine, Hepatitis and STD/HIV. The clinic is located in the Kober Cogan Building Suite 110 and is open from 8:30 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. Residents and students will be asked to record vitals, weight, and pain each time a patient is evaluated. They will be expected to complete the patient teaching section or if patient teaching was not needed, place N/A on this section. Completed charts should be given to the teaching attending. Nursing should be notified about any needed vaccines or injections. In addition, the purple Outpatient summary list, Medication lists, allergy list, yellow problem list, vaccination history, patient education form (for new patients), and CD4/viral load flow sheets should be updated with each visit.
