Workshops & Rounds


Seminars, journal clubs and research workshops are a key aspect of graduate training and central to the MERGE-ID track. MERGE-ID trainees attend the seminar series sponsored by the Immunology and the Molecular Microbiology Graduate Programs.  They also participate in a journal club and research workshop in which research findings are presented. 

An important aspect of MERGE-ID training involves participation in the activities sponsored by the Division of Geographic Medicine and Infectious Disease.  These include the Infectious Disease Fellows Journal Club, a case discussion group organized by MD fellows, and the Infectious Disease Rounds, activities that involve MD trainees and staff physicians.  Participation in these activities will help MERGE-ID students understand problems faced by practicing physicians and also immerse them in the culture of medical practice.
