ID Fellowship: Continuity Clinic
The purpose of the Infectious Diseases Fellow continuity clinic is to provide the Fellow with the experience of following his or her general infectious disease and HIV patients for a prolonged period of time to learn the course of disease. Infectious Diseases Fellows attend continuity clinics periodically at the VA Medical Center (VAMC) and weekly at Medical University Hospital:

Medical University Hospital Continuity Clinic
This continuity clinic sees patients in follow-up from the consult service and referrals from outside physicians. Additionally, this clinic provides comprehensive care for patients infected with HIV (a cohort of approximately 1200). The Infectious Diseases Fellow sees patients one half day a week in this clinic.
