MED 302C. Infectious Diseases Clerkship (SCVMC)

Open to Visitors

Courses      Clerkships

Teaches the skills of diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, including acute illnesses seen in the economically disadvantaged, and subspecialty patient referrals. The format of the clerkship at SCVMC is the same as at SUMC and PAVAMC, but the patient population at SCVMC differs from that of the other two hospitals. Two infectious diseases teaching conferences are held weekly for all three hospital services, and there are two additional conferences per month at SCVMC. Consultations are provided to all general (medical, ob-gyn, surgical) and specialized (burn, rehabilitation, dialysis) units. Tuberculosis clinic and HIV clinic experiences are also available during the rotation. The director of the diagnostic microbiology laboratory will instruct students on diagnostic microbiology lab use and interpretation of results. The Infection Prevention nurses provide an orientation to hospital epidemiology. Students will be supervised by an attending, fellow and one to two residents. Students wishing to do this clerkship must get approval from Dr. Supriya Narasimhan first before registering.
