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
  • Research
  • Electives
