The LEAP experiential curriculum is divided into four domains:
LEAP focuses on experiential learning within these domains. Fellows directly engage in these experiences, facilitated by their partner infection prevention program, antimicrobial stewardship program and health departments. Not all experiences listed below are expected to be year-long, and some may not be available to every fellow. The experiences available to, or needed by, each fellow will differ based on location and a fellow’s interest and level of existing expertise in each domain. LEAP strives to assist each fellow in maximizing their LEAP Fellowship year, with a mentor available to advise on various activities and assist fellows in exploring other potentially useful activities of interest during their LEAP year.
Monthly virtual didactic lecture sessions complement the experiential curriculum and provide fellows with access to content and information not always available at their institution. These sessions provide career guidance from ID physicians who have successfully bridged public health and academic medicine. Alternating months are dedicated to virtual networked educational sessions that allow fellows to share current activities and experiences.
