The EVMS Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program is a fully accredited 2-year program leading to eligibility for certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine, subspecialty of Infectious Disease. Eligible applicants must have received their M.D. or D.O. degree from a medical or osteopathic school approved by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. All applicants must have completed training to qualify for Board eligibility in Internal Medicine.

We are seeking individuals who have excelled in all aspects of undergraduate and graduate medical education, including courses in basic science and in clinical medicine, standardized examinations, research, medical and non-medical extracurricular activities.

The goal of the postgraduate training program in Infectious Diseases at EVMS, is to produce Infectious Diseases specialists who are well trained in all the component areas of Infectious Diseases including inpatient consultation, HIV medicine, in both inpatient and outpatient setting, travel consultations, infection control and hospital epidemiology. The successful graduate will possess all of the tools necessary to assume the role of an outstanding Infectious Diseases consultant and be able to provide optimal patient care in either an academic or community environment.

The training sites for Infectious Disease Fellowship include the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH), Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters, Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Center for Comprehensive Care of Immune Deficiency at Eastern Virginia Medical School. During the first year of the program there are 5 months of inpatient consult service and 1 month of Transplant Infectious Disease at SNGH, 1 month of Microbiology and 4 months of Research. The second year consists of 5 months of inpatient consultation at SNGH and 7 months dedicated to Research or Electives.

The Inpatient Consult Service months are performed at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, a 664 bed tertiary referral hospital with 24,000 annual admissions. SNGH has active heart, kidney and pancreas transplant programs. A new heart hospital opened in February of 2006. SNGH is a Level I Trauma center with a Burn Unit and is a High Risk Obstetrics referral center. SNGH was the first hospital in the United States to have an EICU. SNGH is one of the 59 Leap Frog Top Hospitals in the United States, the only such hospital in the State of Virginia. The Sentara system is annually ranked in the top 5 of all integrated health care networks in the United States. SNGH has received the JCAHO John M. Eisenberg Safety and Quality Award and the American Hospital Association Quest for Quality Prize. Our Fellows will also participate in the SNGH Antibiotic Management Program and as members of the Infection Control Committee and the ID Specialty Group.

The Outpatient Continuity Experience is one half day clinic weekly at the main outpatient clinic for the Center for Comprehensive Care of Immune Deficiency (C3ID) in Hofheimer Hall at EVMS. Focus of this outpatient experience is HIV medicine in a continuity care setting where the Fellows provide care to a panel of patients during the 2 years of the Fellowship from the over 1,500 patients followed by EVMS HIV Clinics. In the Ambulatory Clinic, the Fellows will also gain a breadth of experience in common outpatient Infectious Disease consultations, including travel consultations.

There are two regular weekly conference series for the Fellows. Every Monday is a clinical conference, the Tidewater Adult Pediatric Infectious Diseases Conference and every Friday is a core lecture which includes clinical topics, basic science, journal club and a monthly HIV CME conference.

Fellows have an opportunity to attend the annual Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) meeting and the Interscience Conference of Antimicrobial Agents in Chemotherapeutics (ICAAC). The second year Fellow attends the IDSA Fellows meeting and the Remington Winter Infectious Disease Course. Fellows also have the opportunity to attend the Society for Health Care Epidemiology of America/CDC Epidemiology Course, the Tropical Medicine Course sponsored by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, the EVMS Practice Management Course and an optional Wound Management Course. All Fellows are sent to an ID Board Review Course.

Optional opportunities include additional experience in HIV-Hepatitis C co-infected patients, pediatric infectious disease, geriatric and long term care settings and sexually transmitted diseases clinics.
