Formal Conferences and Didactic Sessions

There are a number of formal conferences and didactic sessions throughout the two-year fellowship.

  • A weekly divisional grand rounds is held on Wednesday at noon where a variety of topics including basic and clinical research as well as clinical updates are presented by expert speakers from Mount Sinai and other institutions.
  • A weekly fellow case conference is held on Tuesday at 5PM. Fellows present interesting cases from the consult services, the HIV service, or clinic. The case presentations are complemented by a review of the relevant medical literature. Our monthly divisional morbidity and mortality conference is incorporated into the weekly case conference schedule.
  • There is a core curriculum lecture series that meets approximately twice monthly on Friday at 8AM. This formal lecture series covers the topics required by the ACGME and spans the two-year fellowship.
  • A monthly journal club is supervised by Dr. Stephanie Factor. Both recent and “landmark” articles will be reviewed and key concepts in the critical review of the literature will be taught.
  • Weekly microbiology rounds are held in the microbiology laboratory at both sites.
  • A monthly divisional research conference is held on Thursday at 12PM. New and ongoing research projects are reviewed.
