Clinic Didactics

During the first month, fellows will receive didactic sessions from core program faculty regarding basic outpatient management and care of patients living with HIV/AIDS. As the year progresses, fellows will highlight and educate about specific topics within outpatient ID care, in an interactive manner, to both co-fellows and faculty. 

ID Conferences

ID conferences occur every Wednesday at 8:15 am and encompass a variety of formats, including case conference, root cause analysis, fellow and faculty development sessions, and speakers from other US or international institutions sharing their special expertise on a wide range of ID topics.  Case Conference is a highly interactive exercise in which fellows present an interesting case, establish a differential, present the diagnosis and management, and a review of the literature.

Core Curriculum

Core Curriculum occurs every Wednesday at 9 am and constitutes the main didactic of our fellowship program.  Faculty from the ID section, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, College of Pharmacy, College of Public Health, and the Oklahoma State Department of Health, deliver topics primarily geared towards the fellows, following a designated curriculum  This includes a structured Transplant ID curriculum, a series of lectures on HIV and on tuberculosis, pharmacology of antimicrobial agents, tropical medicine lectures, among other.

Journal Club

Journal Club occurs every third Wednesday of the month in the afternoon and represents an important forum to learn how to critically appraise literature, review landmark studies and new papers, in a casual, interactive, and paper-based format (PowerPoint-free).

Microbiology Rounds

Micro Rounds are held every Friday and are the fellow-favorite didactic series of the program. During these interactive sessions, inpatient cases are discussed and pertinent microbiology and slides are presented by the director or associate director of the Microbiology lab. 

Weekly Board Review

Fellows meet on a weekly basis with the Director or Associate Program Director to discuss high-yield topics assigned to fellows throughout the year and structured around the ID Boards blueprint, including topic review and case-based questions.  The program also offers fellows access to the George Washington Board Review course during their second year of training.
