Stephanie Sweitzer, MD, MSPH
First Year Fellow
I came to UNC because I knew that I would receive strong clinical training in infectious diseases at UNC, and I was excited about the research opportunities that were available, especially the chance to develop my skills in implementation science abroad. I was struck by how approachable the faculty were, and I felt that UNC was a place where I would have access to incredible mentors who would support me in reaching my professional goals. It was also important to me to train at a public institution that provides care to the underserved.
I am most interested in ways of improving clinical services to better engage underserved populations in care. My prior research has been focused on HIV epidemiology and access to care among underserved populations in southern Africa; HIV care for patients with complex needs in Atlanta, GA; and syphilis screening and connection to care in Atlanta, GA.
