  • Monday Noon Conference: 
    • The weekly Monday ID Core Lecture noon conference series incorporates principles of active learning, guest speakers, infection control experiential exercises, and material covering the core ID content areas. "Micro rounds" occurs every other week after noon conference, drawing on the rich clinical caseload and the expertise of our faculty.
  • Case Conferences: 
    • Transplant ID and General ID case conferences are weekly, clinically-oriented, engaging conferences that allow our fellows and faculty the opportunity to share challenging and interesting active cases.
  • Antimicrobial Tutorial Series: 
    • Our Antimicrobial Tutorial Series is a wildly popular 17 session series led by our ID Pharmacist, Dr. Jim Lewis. This series is a high-impact, practical, and fun interactive primer on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, review of the major antimicrobial drugs and classes, and their application to special populations such as in pregnancy and lactation.
  • Portland ID Citywide Conference: 
    • Our Citywide conference is a case-based conference that is hosted at a rotating clinical site on a weekly basis. Cases and short discussions are presented, with lively participation from colleagues throughout the Portland metropolitan area.
  • Pre-clinic HIV Conference: 
    • The weekly Friday pre-clinic HIV conference is a didactic series that comprehensively covers core HIV topics including virology, antiviral therapeutics, opportunistic infections, HIV important comorbidities, and social/structural determinants of health for people living with HIV infection.
  • Antimicrobial Stewardship Series: 
    • ​​​​​​​Our fellows participate in an Antimicrobial Stewardship Curriculum consisting of one week of didactic and small group learnings from our stewardship faculty and ID Pharmacists, followed by a week of mentored practical experience in antimicrobial stewardship.
  • ​​​​​​​Quality Improvement:
    • ​​​​​​​The Quality Improvement (QI) curriculum includes a focused didactic series, longitudinal participation in a QI project, and mentored preparation of an ID Division M&M conference.  Given the strong relevance of QI to ID in areas such as antimicrobial stewardship, infection prevention and control, and diagnostic stewardship, our fellows' QI project is often an instrument of important practice change as well as a starting point for scholarly work.
  • Journal Club: 
    • ​​​​​​​Journal Club is held monthly and led by two fellows, with an emphasis on critical review of the literature and presentation of key or practice-changing ID papers.
  • ID Faculty Seminar: 
    • ​​​​​​​Our Faculty Seminar series is held monthly and highlights the active scholarly pursuits of our faculty.​​​​​​​
