Fellow Statements:

“Fellows in Infectious Disease at Einstein will discover a highly collegial faculty. The division consists of a small, closely-knit group of clinicians dedicated to maintaining an up-to-date, evidence-based practice, sustained by a team-based approach to teaching and learning. The faculty’s commitment to the institution, the program, and above all, the patients, is reflected in the group’s low turnover. In fact, two of the division’s attendings are themselves graduates of the ID program, one of whom also completed her residency at Einstein.”

“Fellows at Einstein are regularly exposed to a high degree of medical complexity and advanced pathology, in a program with a very strong clinical focus. This includes management of the infection’s complications of solid organ transplant recipients- a core clinical duty throughout the fellowship. Transplant patients are a unique sub-population in terms of the infectious diseases that afflict them. We offer great exposure to the infectious diseases of transplant patients. This happens within a well-established culture of house staff autonomy, which fosters independent decision-making and clinical acumen, with appropriate faculty supervision always readily available.

And while the clinical focus is strong, there are numerous opportunities to engage in research. Einstein has a structured research curriculum that will walk you through the process of developing a research protocol. The research personnel are always available to answer your questions. Whether you’re experienced in doing research or not, Einstein will help you achieve success.”
