ID Didactics Conference

Day/time: Tuesdays, 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm
Place: Carter-Harrison Building, MR6, Room 2501

Didactics are intended to reinforce fellows’ learning from clinical rounds and consultation service, and expose them to topics and diseases less commonly encountered in clinical settings. Individual sessions are taught by the ID faculty members who know the topic best; in many cases they have published extensively and are regarded as experts on the subject. Faculty from outside the division are also invited to present in order to broaden the fellows’ education.
