INFECTIOUS DISEASE

OBJECTIVES/DESCRIPTION OF EDUCATIONAL ROTATION.

  • The Infectious Disease rotation is a combined inpatient and outpatient experience with exposure to infectious disease medicine, including surgical infections, chronic hepatitis, HIV, travel, deployment, mycobacterial infections, and tropical medicine.
  • Students will participate in inpatient and outpatient consultations as well as outpatient clinic along with rotating housestaff from Tripler AMC and the University of Hawaii Internal Medicine residency program.
  • The service sees a variety of infectious and tropical diseases of military and worldwide importance.
  • Students are expected to have some clinical experience before starting this rotation.
  • CHCS, Essentris, and AHLTA experience at other military hospitals is desired but not required.

FREQUENCY OF CALL.

  • None.
  • Weekends will generally be free of obligation.

REQUIRED READINGS.

  • Each student is expected to read and be familiar with The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy and should bring or have access to at least one major Internal Medicine textbook.
  • In addition, there will be selected readings from textbooks and journals based on identified patient problems seen in the clinic and on the ward.
  • All students should access and be familiar with Infectious Disease Practice Guidelines that can be found on the Infectious Diseases Society of America webpage at www.idsociety.org.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS.

  • Each student is expected to attend all Infectious Disease and Internal Medicine conferences, to include morning report, noon lecture and Tuesday afternoon internal medicine academic day.
  • Since the treatment of complicated infections requires chronic follow-up and continuity of experience is desired we would discourage outside or additional responsibilities (i.e. time away from rotation for Problem Based Learning tutoring etc).

HOW ARE STUDENTS EVALUATED?

  • The student's evaluation will be based on performance on both inpatient and outpatient experiences.
  • This evaluation will reflect his/her fund of knowledge, ability to gather and synthesize information, oral presentations, written notes, motivation, work habits, and interpersonal skills.
  • Generally the RIME format is used in evaluations (Reporter, Interpreter, Manager, Educator/Expert).
  • Fourth year students are expected to be at the level of a Reporter.
  • A pre-test and post-rotation exam may be offered.
