I have really enjoyed my Infectious Disease Fellowship here at Wake Forest.  The array of cases allows you to expand your knowledge tremendously in the outpatient and inpatient setting.  The attendings are extremely supportive and allow you to develop the skills necessary to be a well-prepared ID provider.  I have also enjoyed how closely we work with our ID pharmacists; they really are helpful in making complex antimicrobial decisions.  Overall, I’m glad I decided to come to Wake Forest and have the opportunity to learn from great physicians.

Training in the Infectious Diseases fellowship at Wake Forest has been a great experience. We have the privilege to work with supportive faculty members who are enthusiastic and passionate about teaching, and we have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of interesting cases with varying levels of complexity. This ultimately results in a friendly environment conducive to professional, academic, and personal growth, fostering a confidence in our skill set to manage a vast array of infectious diseases.

I am fortunate to have this opportunity to do my fellowship training at Wake Forest under the guidance of some of the best Infectious Disease specialists. The faculty here is deeply committed to helping the fellows reach their career goals.  I appreciate the diversity of patient care, educational, and research experiences that are available here.

I appreciate the individuality and self-expression that medicine allows in both physicians and patients. Wake Forest is a caring and supportive environment that supports both the person as a physician and as a unique and separate individual. The broad ranges of personalities and experiences all flow together seamlessly to make a great diagnostic team. In addition to honing my clinical skills and knowledge, I have had amazing support on developing and pursuing research skills and projects as well.

I love ID for the specialized knowledge that we are asked to apply to all different specialties in medicine.  This challenges us not only to know our own field, but have a good working knowledge of other specialties as well.  Wake Forest is a great place to get this training.  There are great cases, from the rare to more common varieties.  The faculty is very supportive and a great resource with all the different backgrounds they come from.  The program in general is well structured and really invests in their fellows.  They are open to feedback and making adjustments to meet the fellows’ needs.  There are also great didactic sessions, from the traditional lectures to more interactive sessions and weekly microbiology rounds.   Being a part of such a large institution like Wake Forest, also gives us access to resources for research, patient care and unique learning opportunities that are hard to find elsewhere.

I have found the Infectious Disease fellowship here at Wake Forest to provide an excellent mix of the common cases as well as the complex and less frequently seen infectious processes. The Infectious Disease Section is one of the friendliest and most approachable departments as a whole that I have come across. This has translated into a collegial and interactive learning environment. The attendings are very supportive of helping to balance our home lives with work as well as helping to foster the confidence and knowledge base needed to make complicated medical decisions and assessments
