The Geisinger Infectious Diseases Fellowship program is organized to provide you with a supervised educational experience and training. Over the course of two years, you’ll gain the competency of a specialist with a thorough understanding of the principles and practices of infectious diseases.
Your years with us will be divided into four-week blocks. You’ll participate in formal didactics, a wide variety of direct patient care rotations, research, and a hospital epidemiology and antibiotic stewardship program. Each experience is designed to teach you six competencies — patient care, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, practice-based learning and improvement, and system-based practice.
Rotations and experiences include:
- Inpatient consultation
- Outpatient care
- HIV/AIDS rotation
- Sexually transmitted disease clinic
- Clinical microbiology laboratory
- Infection prevention and control
- Antimicrobial stewardship program
The Division of Infectious Diseases at Geisinger sponsors several conferences:
- Introductory lectures

- Subspecialty lecture at noon conference for general internal medicine residents
