The Clinical Experience • End of 1st yr-Micro Lab orientation • Combination of inpatient consults and several outpatient clinic experiences • Case, didactic and journal club conferences.
The Clinical Experience • Three fellows per year allows 6 months of clinical and 6 months research in each of the last two years. • 3 rotations-General Inpatient Consults • Transplant/HIV Consults • Outpatient
Inpatient Consults • Team composed of 1 fellow, 1-2 Residents, 1-4 Students • Daily rounds with attending • Consult cap at 6 before 5pm Cross-cover and division of labor with transplant fellow • Diverse patient mix
Transplant/HIV Inpatient Consults • UVA has active Liver, Kidney, Lung, Heart and Pancreas transplant programs • A new director for bone marrow transplant is expected to be in place by 7/09 • 3 attendings rotate responsibilities with fellow for transplant cases • HIV patients have a different attending rotation
Outpatient Block • Clinics-HIV, ID, Traveler’s and STD • Phone consults • Case Conference
Clinics • Ryan White HIV-2 year continuity clinic one ½ day per week • General ID • STD-(Health Dept) • Traveler’s Clinic
Conferences • Case conference • ID board review didactic • HIV didactic-18 hr curriculum • Two Journal clubs-basic science and clinical • Research in progress-several venues
UVA ID Fellowship ProgramResearch Focus Eric Houpt, MD Director of Research ID Fellowship Program
Goal • Go from an excellent medical resident to a sought-after Assistant Professor in 3 years
How - a straight path • Research acumen in a focused area of Infectious Disease research • Track-record of peer-reviewed publications • Propose research interesting enough to receive extramural funding • ex, National Institutes of Health Mentored Clinical Scientist Development K08/K23 Awards.
ID Fellow Research at UVA • Develop a research program with one or more faculty members from the Infectious Disease Group or from another department. • Extensive mentoring and an Advisory committee • Protected time • Superb research infrastructure and support
ID Fellow Research at UVA • (with mentorship) the fellow defines project, designs and performs experiments, interprets data, writes publications and grants • Formal coursework • Mostly on-the-job learning • One year is protected to “jump-start” • Years 2 and 3 allow the research to be maintained while Clinical training occurs
Areas of Research • Immune response • Braciale, Engelhard, Fu, Hammarskjold, Houpt, Petri, Ravichandran • Global health/Parasitology • Dillingham, Guerrant, Houpt, Moore, Pearson, Peterson, Petri, Scheld • Bacterial pathogenesis • Goldberg, Hewlett, Hoffman, Hughes, Mann, Ramakrishnan, Scheld, Sifri, Tessier • Virology/HIV • Hammarskjold, Hayden, Kedes, Rekosh, Yuan • Host genetics/Epidemiology • Guerrant, Concannon, Hall, Knaus, Peterson, Petri, Rich, Warren
Former UVA ID Fellows • Last 10 years, 9 NIH K grants funded • Now at: Cleveland Clinic, Columbia, Pittsburgh, Mt. Sinai, VCU, UVA, Vermont, Northwestern, Wake Forest, ETSU, MUSC, Stanford, UBC, Duke • http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/internet/inf-diseases/WhereAreTheyNow.cfm
Today • Don’t worry about “finding” a project or mentor • Get a sense for our environment first • Determine if our program is the right fit for your career vision • If yes, after the match, we pay to revisit and your research project details and mentor will happen.
