Infectious Disease Interest Group (IDIG)
IDIG provides medical students with opportunities to learn about and explore careers in adult and pediatric infectious disease. Our talk series allows students to learn about various current topics in infectious disease, many of which are being actively investigated at Washington University. Students can get first-hand experience in ID by shadowing in the inpatient ID service or the outpatient clinic at Barnes-Jewish and Children’s Hospital. Students also have the opportunity to meet potential clinical and research mentors in the adult ID and pediatric ID Divisions by attending division events. Through these programs, we hope to spread awareness and appreciation of the impact of ID as a field and its relevance throughout medicine.
