Medical Students

Students at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson can sign up for an elective rotation in Infectious Diseases through OASIS.

In this rotation, you will learn to manage common infectious disease-related problems. The rotation consists of patient consultations, ward rounds with an attending physician and clinical pharmacologist; clinical conferences and instruction in the central clinical microbiological laboratory. Students will be provided a core curriculum outline and current literature references. Scheduled events during the rotation will include infectious disease subspecialty noon conferences (monthly at Southern Arizona VA Health Care System) and infectious disease conferences weekly at UAMC. The section chief also recommends that students attend the Refugee Clinic at least once during the rotation.
