Seminars and Journal Club

Our seminars provide information essential to your practice but rarely covered at any level of medical training. Our monthly journal club builds critical evaluation skills and keeps you current on important clinical studies.


To ready you for your journal club presentations, you will attend four seminars on biostatistics—two in your first year as a fellow and two in your second.

During both years of your fellowship, UB faculty will deliver four seminars on documentation, coding and compliance. Unique to our program, these lectures teach you essentials for your practice that are typically overlooked in medical training curricula.

Journal Club

You’ll learn the latest findings about infectious diseases diagnosis and management in our journal club.

As a fellow, you will present journal articles five to six times a year. In consultation with a faculty member, you will choose a recent article from a primary infectious diseases journal, prepare a presentation and lead a discussion.

Journal presentations address the article’s background, study design, results and data interpretations. They last 30 minutes, including discussion time.
