Division of Infectious Diseases & HIV Medicine Schlossberg Infectious Disease Citywide Conference

Citywide Infectious Disease Conference

About the Conference

The Schlossberg Infectious Disease Citywide Conference is a monthly meeting of infectious disease practitioners and trainees that has existed for many decades. It has been known by different names and has been held at different locations, but its purpose has always been the same. Through this conference, participants discuss interesting cases, share their clinical experiences, and impart knowledge to their colleagues to improve the care and outcomes of their patients. Furthermore, the conference is an opportunity for students and residents who aspire to be infectious disease physicians to meet experts in the field and learn how they may pursue this exciting career.

All with an interest in infectious diseases are welcome to attend!
