Infectious Disease - INFE 541


University of Maryland

Description and Goals:

The Infectious Disease Consultative Service serves patients in virtually all departments of the hospital. Many of these patients are among the most acutely ill and they often pose the most difficult diagnostic enigmas. The diagnosis of infections and proper management of patients with these diseases are taught by exposing students to a broad spectrum of clinical problems. The appropriate use of microbiology, virology and serology laboratories is stressed. The student sees consultations under the supervision of a full-time attending at the University Hospital and at the Greenebaum Cancer Center. A clinical infectious disease conference for faculty, house staff and students is held weekly.
