Immunocompromised Host Fellowship

Care and Antimicrobial Stewardship for the Immunocompromised Host 

Anne and Jeremy

The Immunocompromised Host Infectious Disease Program (ICH ID) at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill is accepting applications for a one-year clinical fellowship in care and antimicrobial stewardship for the immunocompromised host. This fellowship combines strong clinical training in providing inpatient and outpatient consultative services for immunocompromised hosts combined with education and training in antimicrobial stewardship and hospital epidemiology in those populations. Training will consist of 1) 6 months of inpatient consultation with UNC ICH ID Service, which provides care for patients with solid organ (heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas) and hematopoietic stem cell transplant, hematological malignancy, and burn injury, 2) half-day per week providing outpatient ID care in either the Transplant Clinic or the Hematology Oncology Clinic, and 3) 6 months of service with the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and the Department of Hospital Epidemiology to learn about stewardship and infection prevention in immunocompromised patients.  Fellows will also participate in weekly selection meetings for organ and stem cell transplantation, take part in the Anti-infective Subcommittee of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, attend workshops on stewardship practices and infection control, and perform quality improvement or research projects.

 

This position is open to physicians who will have completed an ACGME-certified clinical infectious disease fellowship or the equivalent by the start date of the program. Interested applicants may request further information or submit a letter of interest and a current curriculum vitae to anne_lachiewicz@med.unc.edu. 2 letters of recommendation are also requested prior to scheduling an interview.
