Infectious Diseases & Immunology Conferences & Seminars
NYU Langone’s Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology hosts several weekly conferences, seminars, grand rounds, and didactic sessions. Our goal is to enhance clinical and basic science learning in infectious diseases and to refine expertise in evaluating medical literature.
Case conferences are held weekly on Thursdays and alternate between journal club and morbidity and mortality conferences. Fellows present one to two clinical cases involving inpatients or outpatients in their care. The themes of the conference rotate among transplant infectious diseases, general infectious diseases, HIV, tuberculosis or mycobacteria, and pediatric and adult infectious diseases. A faculty member moderates the session, and presentations are open for discussion between faculty and fellows around specific, predetermined questions.
Morbidity and Mortality Conference and Core Curriculum Conference
Held weekly, the morbidity and mortality conference includes case-based discussion on root cause analysis and quality improvement in infectious diseases.
The core curriculum conference is a weekly session that includes didactics in key infectious diseases topics, board review questions, and other topics requested by fellows.
Inter-City Rounds and Journal Club
Inter-city rounds is a weekly conference held at various institutions. Fellows present unique infectious diseases cases from different hospitals in the New York City area to an audience of experienced infectious diseases faculty from multiple academic medical centers.
Journal club is held monthly; faculty and fellows present key papers from the literature on infectious diseases for analysis.
Microbiology Lab Rounds and HIV Management Conference
Held every Tuesday, microbiology lab rounds are weekly didactic case-based sessions for fellows and faculty within the division. Microbiology lab rounds are led by the director of clinical microbiology at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue.
The HIV management conference is held monthly with focused didactics on antiretroviral resistance, opportunistic infections, and primary care for patients who have HIV.
Infectious Disease Research Work-in-Progress Conference and Breakfast with Program Director
Fellows and faculty members present at work-in-progress conferences on ongoing research and related literature review of research questions, methods, and goals. This conference is held twice a month.
Held monthly, the breakfast meeting with the fellowship program director helps promote communication and feedback with fellows.
Medical Grand Rounds and Infectious Diseases Grand Rounds
NYU Langone’s Department of Medicine hosts weekly grand rounds and lectures related to timely topics in medicine. Grand rounds for fellows include Medical Grand Rounds and Infectious Diseases Grand Rounds.
During Medical Grand Rounds, weekly guest speakers present on varied topics in internal medicine. View the Department of Medicine Grand Rounds calendar for the full schedule.
Infectious Diseases Grand Rounds are weekly lectures by guest speakers who have a significant research focus. These are formal presentations with the goal of educating Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology faculty. Fellows lead several grand rounds throughout the year, presenting a literature review of a specific topic such as pathogenesis and diagnosis or management of infectious diseases.
Summer Core Curriculum: Intensive Introduction to Infectious Diseases
Held two to three times a week, these didactic sessions run in July and August and provide fellows with an intensive introduction to clinical infectious diseases. Our faculty present on various topics within the field of infectious diseases, helping trainees develop their expertise in subspecialties. For example, pharmacy faculty deliver lectures in advanced pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antimicrobials, transplant infectious diseases faculty present on opportunistic infections in solid organ transplants, and experienced virologists deliver lectures on antiretroviral management.
