The Infectious Diseases PGY2 at Duke University Hospital is designed to give broad exposure to clinical care, program management, and research in infectious diseases. The resident will practice with established interdisciplinary teams throughout Duke University Hospital including the adult and pediatric general and transplant infectious diseases consulting services, pediatric and adult antimicrobial stewardship services, ambulatory infectious diseases clinic, and consultative antimicrobial stewardship. Additional competency in penicillin skin testing, microbiology, and infection control will be gained. Teaching opportunities are available with the UNC School of Pharmacy and the Duke Physician’s Assistant Program. Additional elective rotations (e.g. solid organ transplant, critical care, bone marrow transplant) are possible and supported by the preceptorship depending on the specific interests of the resident.
