Clinical Educator Track
The second-year is devoted to (1) enhancing the fellow’s clinical expertise in the care of immunocompromised hosts (with and without HIV infection), (2) obtaining formal training in medical education, and (3) engaging in scholarly activity.
The clinical program in the second year includes inpatient time on the HIV consult service at San Francisco General Hospital as well as additional dedicated time on the Transplant Infectious Diseases Consult Service at UCSF Medical Center. Ambulatory experiences include an HIV continuity care clinic at San Francisco General Hospital (“Ward 86”) as well as Transplant Infectious Diseases Clinic at UCSF Medical Center. Formal training in educational methods may be obtained through the Pathways Program for Health Professions Education. Scholarly activities include development of educational curricula, clinical research, writing a scholarly review, and/or participation in quality improvement projects. Fellows will have access to internationally renowned medical educators within the Division of Infectious Diseases and Department of Medicine, as well as the larger UCSF community.
