Clinical and Research Training
The variety of UT Southwestern Medical Center-affiliated facilities provides fellows with a wide variety of patient populations and infectious pathologies.
Fellows learn the appropriate and cost-effective use of antimicrobials and biologics, principles of infection control strategies for the management and prevention of nosocomial infections, and principles of diagnosis and management of a wide spectrum of infectious diseases in hospitalized patients. They become familiar with inpatient management of HIV-infected and other immunocompromised patients.
One of the most significant assets to fellows training at UT Southwestern Medical Center is the extraordinary breadth and depth of basic and clinical research of the institution's faculty.
Another significant asset is extensive collaboration among faculty and trainees of different departments and divisions. Fellows have the opportunity to engage in basic, translational, and clinical research within or outside the boundaries of the Infectious Disease Division.
