Antimicrobial Stewardship(AS)/Infection Control(IC) Track:
The AS/IC Track is available as a 2-year clinical AS/IC track or 3-year research AS/IC track.
Both tracks provide advanced training in antimicrobial stewardship and infection control through didactics, hands-on practical training, and scholarly projects. The 3-year research track is designed for fellows interested in advanced training in clinical research through additional coursework/degrees while completing a mentored research project. Applicants interested in the 2-year track would apply via the Clinician Educator Track and the 3-year track via the Research Track in ERAS. Fellows would complete the standard clinical requirements during the first two years of training. Additional details about this track are outlined below.
