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 Fellow

Fellows are responsible for after-hours calls from clinic patients and from ORMC. Call starts at 4:30pm and ends at 8:00am the next day. Fellow needs to assign overnight consults among the different ORMC teams. There is always an attending as back up while on evening calls. Fellows are on call one week per block and that includes a weekend call at ORMC or DPH.
