The purpose of the Infectious Disease Interest Group (IDIG) is to stimulate student interest in the field of infectious disease (ID). The group will establish a mentorship program by pairing each interested student with an ID faculty member. The goal of this program is to foster student academic and career exploration in ID and to facilitate shadowing opportunities. IDIG will also offer monthly activities, including but not limited to:

(1) lunchtime talks by faculty in the field,

(2) events to facilitate continued engagement between ID physicians and students,

(3) networking events with faculty in ID, other School of Medicine departments, and the School of Public Health, and

(4) workshops to simulate ID cases.
