Electives - Infectious Diseases Fellowship
Elective time is used to pursue research projects or rotations of particular career interest at UMMC or other institutions.
Listed below are some of the individualized electives that fellows have participated in recent years.
Any Infectious Diseases-related elective opportunity will be considered if it coincides with the fellow's career goals and will provide a useful learning experience.
