    4. UVA Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program • Our fellowship program is committed to excellence in clinical infectious diseases training with the expressed goal of producing the next generation of physician-scientists.

    5. UVA ID • Unique 3 year structure • 1st yr–Research • 2nd/3rd yrs-Combined clinical with ongoing research • Rationale

    6. 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.

    7. 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

    8. 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

    9. 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

    10. Outpatient Block • Clinics-HIV, ID, Traveler’s and STD • Phone consults • Case Conference

    12. Conferences • Case conference • ID board review didactic • HIV didactic-18 hr curriculum • Two Journal clubs-basic science and clinical • Research in progress-several venues

    13. UVA ID Fellowship ProgramResearch Focus Eric Houpt, MD Director of Research ID Fellowship Program

    14. Goal • Go from an excellent medical resident to a sought-after Assistant Professor in 3 years

    15. 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.

    16. 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

    17. 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

    18. 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

    21. 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.
