Clinical Experiences

C.S. Mott Children's Hospital moved to a new home in December 2011.  The $754 million hospital features a 1.1 million square foot, 348-bed facility that is home to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, the Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital, and adult and pediatric blood and marrow transplant programs.  The new hospital features a 12-story inpatient tower and nine-story clinic tower, a dedicated pediatric emergency department, an on-site Ronald McDonald House, and private rooms.  The hospital also offers a new and larger home for specialty services not offered anywhere else in Michigan for newborns, children and pregnant women.

Clinical Training

Under the supervision of Pediatric Infectious Diseases faculty members, our trainees -- medical students, pediatric residents, and PID fellows -- care for children with a wide variety of both common and uncommon infections. Many patients served by our hospital are immunosuppressed because of cancer chemotherapy, primary immunodeficiency diseases, HIV infection, immunomodulatory treatment, or immunosuppressions associated with organ transplantation, and develop challenging infections. 

C.S. Mott Children's Hospital also serves pediatric general surgery and subspecialty surgery patients (thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, urology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, and otolaryngology) with complex surgical problems that often present challenging infectious diseases questions. Our division is closely integrated with the hospital bacteriology, mycology, parasitology and virology laboratories and the fellows serve rotations in these areas. 

PID fellows participate in weekly clinical conferences within the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Division, including case conferences, small group discussion, and teaching sessions. Joint conferences in conjunction with the Internal Medicine Infectious Diseases service provide additional infectious disease teaching opportunities. In addition, our fellows participate in general pediatric conferences such as Grand Rounds, case conferences, and morning report. 

PID fellows follow their patients in the Pediatric Infectious Diseases outpatient clinic to facilitate continuity care of patients. The Pediatric Infectious Disease Consultation service usually consists of a supervising faculty member, a fellow, one or two pediatric residents, one or two fourth-year medical students, a clinical pediatric infectious diseases pharmacist, an infectious diseases pharmacy resident, and one or two pharmacy students.
