The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Morningside-West Hospital Center Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program is a joint Mount Sinai Morningside – Mount Sinai West – Mount Sinai Beth Israel training program in Infectious Diseases designed to provide comprehensive training to produce a specialist in the field of Infectious Diseases. The program consists of two years of supervised inpatient and outpatient clinical training during which the six required ACGME competencies are emphasized through didactic sessions, patient-centered clinical rotations, conferences, research/scholarly work projects, and a variety of other experiences. The fellows are exposed to a wide variety of training opportunities in the areas of general adult infectious diseases, transplant infectious diseases, HIV, viral hepatitis, microbiology, virology, surgical infections, hospital epidemiology, infection prevention, antibiotic stewardship, outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy, tropical and emerging infections, drug resistant organisms, infectious diseases epidemiology and public health and travel medicine, as well as exposure to, and the opportunity to participate in infectious diseases research. As the fellows progress over the two years, they assume increasing responsibilities in the areas of patient care, leadership, teaching and administration. At the completion of the program, the fellow should meet the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine subspecialty board in Infectious Diseases. This fully integrated joint program is based at three teaching sites: Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai Morningside, and Mount Sinai West. Fellows spend training time at each site including Mount Sinai Hospital for Transplant Infectious Diseases. Each hospital is located in a different area of Manhattan which provides our fellows with the opportunity to learn about infections and the practice of in and out patient adult infectious diseases in a full range of specialty areas serving an extremely diverse patient population.
