Work Shift:

Day (United States of America)

The goal of the training program in Medical and Public Health Laboratory Microbiology (CPEP Program) based at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is to train fellows to assume leadership roles in academic, tertiary care and or public health clinical microbiology laboratories. Philosophically we believe that this education is best accomplished through hands-on instruction in microbiological methods, direct participation in the consultative and administrative activities of the microbiology laboratory, and participation in activities of the infectious diseases, pharmacy, and infection control/hospital epidemiology departments. A further philosophical belief is that fellows should be trained in the thought process involved in furthering the knowledge in our specialty. Our ultimate goal is to train academic leaders in the specialty who will both lead microbiology laboratories, and also contribute at a scientific level to microbiology diagnostics and/or to our understanding of infectious diseases. Therefore, it is an expectation that fellows will become involved in medical microbiology-related research academic activities during their fellowship training. This research will focus on infectiious disease diagnostic development.
