Infectious Disease Problem Based Learning or ID-PBL is designed to
immerse students in MERGE-ID training as soon as they arrive at the
Sackler School. The course uses the format of medical school
problem-based learning through group discussion supervised by a
physician and introduces trainees to selected infectious disease issues
through readings and examination of cases.
match areas of expertise of our faculty are featured and help students
identify rotations and eventually thesis mentors who will match their
interests. Examination and discussion of cases is supplemented by
physician-supervised patient presentations in a clinical setting.
ID-PBL also provides each trainee with a framework to identify his or
her first rotation project and develop the research question through
collaboration with a basic scientist and a physician. Each trainee
presents the project at the end of the course.
