Year 4

The students continue to perform research, participate in the clinical microbiology session and participate in the Departmental Seminar Series (PAMM 970) and Advanced topics in Microbiology (PAMM 992). In addition, the SBTP students have the opportunity to round with the infectious disease team during Year 4. Dr. Mark Rupp, member of the CSR, is an Infectious Disease physician in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Infectious Disease, and also serves as the Medical Director for the Department of Healthcare Epidemiology. The infectious disease team (includes 3rd and 4th year medical students, house officers, infectious disease fellows, infectious disease pharmacists, and attending faculty) as they follow patients at the Nebraska Medicine. During these sessions, discussions of the pathogenesis, treatment, and epidemiology of various ailments will be discussed. It is proposed to have each SBTP student round with the Infectious Disease team one month in Year 4. Each session typically takes three to four hours per day.
