The Clinical Training Program

Orlando's fellowship training program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). This two year program will lead to eligibility in infectious disease certifying examination.
Clinical training for infectious disease fellows focuses on an in-depth clinical experience that allows fellows to function as the primary consultants in a variety of settings, including inpatient and outpatient consultative services, and as the primary managers for a group of HIV infected patients.

Outpatient Clinics

All ID fellows will have at least one clinic per week. They will alternate between general ID clinic (every other week) and a HIV specific clinic (the alternate week). "Off service" fellows (not on an inpatient consult service) will also have a weekly travel clinic.

On-Call Rotation

Fellows on inpatient consult rotations (13 months) will take beeper call during the evenings and will have off every other weekend. During the outpatient and research months (11 months) the fellow will not have any call obligations.
