Infectious Diseases Fellowship, Royal Oak

Our Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program offers two fellowship training positions each year to qualified candidates who have completed a residency in Internal Medicine in a US or Canadian accredited program.

Our trainees receive broad clinical experience in both adult and pediatric infectious diseases, including but not limited to:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • transplant ID
  • tuberculosis
  • sexually transmitted diseases
  • hepatitis C
  • tropical medicine
  • immunology and immunocompromised hosts
  • hospital epidemiology
  • infection control
  • antimicrobial management
  • pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antimicrobics
  • outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy.

The faculty consists of full-time staff physicians board certified in either adult or pediatric infectious diseases. Additionally, our fellows have the opportunity to interact with 30 infectious diseases physicians in private practice, along with affiliated health care professionals in pharmacy, hospital epidemiology and infection control, research, and medical microbiology.

Mission

Our mission is to train Infectious Diseases fellows to provide compassionate, extraordinary care to a diverse population. The Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak is designed to provide a comprehensive learning experience that prepares physicians to meet the demands of contemporary ID practice in urban and suburban community hospitals. Fellows learn to provide patient- and family-centered care, contributing to the health and well-being of patients throughout the community.

Aims

  • Develop outstanding clinical ID specialists with a commitment to patient care.
  • Provide trainees with unique educational opportunities not routinely available at other institutions, particularly in areas of public health, HIV prevention, and hepatitis C.
  • Graduate physicians who excel in interpersonal communication skills with people from all educational, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds, with the ultimate goal of optimizing patient and family centered care.
  • Promote a healthy balance between work and home responsibilities that allows for ideal functioning in both arenas.

Goals and Objectives

The goals of the infectious diseases fellowship training program are to provide in-depth training and experience in:

  • general infectious diseases
  • infectious diseases involving infants, children and the elderly
  • infections in the compromised host including those with HIV/AIDS, solid organ transplants and stem cell recipients
  • specific infections including sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and tropical diseases.

This training is augmented with additional training in medical microbiology, hospital epidemiology, pharmacology and antimicrobial stewardship, clinical immunology, and international medicine. A formal core curriculum has been structured to achieve these goals with specific objectives defined for each rotation. Approximately 25 percent of the fellowship experience is devoted to the design and conduct of scientific investigational studies.

Graduates from our program have successfully made the transition to private practice, full-time hospital-based teaching positions, university appointments, and governmental/public health positions (CDC, FDA, military medicine).
