I really enjoy being a fellow at Wake Forest in what I call the most interesting field of medicine. The department harbors a cohort of very competent and leading ID practitioners where education is a continuum and not divided in spikes. Every faculty member is available and happy to answer various questions, and there are no stupid questions! I also had the chance to engage in a multitude of scholarly activities offered by the department: global health certificate, QI project, hands on innovative non-human primate research study. Learning ID at Wake Forest only made me fonder of the specialty and drove my passion even further.

I have found Wake Forest to be an excellent place to train and achieve my goal of becoming a successful Infectious Disease specialist.  Wake Forest offers a first-rate environment of well-rounded specialists and ancillary staff. Faculty members are very friendly, supportive and share the passion of teaching. The different settings and variety of cases that we see make our training even stronger.  I’m very happy to be part of this family and have the chance to grow in my career!

I love ID because of the vast array of different pathologies we see.  It also allows us the opportunity to continue learning and seeing issues with all systems of the body.  We also get to see people helped with our treatments.  I chose WFSM because of the reputation of the school and hospital.  I also liked how good the attendings are in terms of helping me grow as both an ID doctor and a person.  They and the staff, pharmacies and lab personnel are all excellent teachers.  Strengths of the program are the sheer number of different pathologies we see.  Also, the good spread of general ID, HIV, and more rare diseases we are exposed to.
