Medical Students

The monthly clinical elective in Infectious Diseases at the MGH is structured around the consultation services provided by the Infectious Disease Division. Each student works with an infectious disease fellow, and together they evaluate and provide continuing care for patients for whom consultative services are requested. Students present those cases that they have worked-up to the Attending (Staff) Physician on daily rounds. Learning about infectious diseases and the role of a consultant is then accomplished at the bedside and on daily rounds. The student will perform approximately one consultation a day. In addition, students are expected to attend three weekly infectious disease conferences, a case-management conference on Monday mornings, a case-based clinical or research conference on Wednesday mornings, and an HIV-focused conference on Friday mornings.
