Last week, our Infectious Diseases Interest Group held a multidisciplinary panel surrounding careers in Infectious Diseases. Students from medicine, pharmacy, nursing, graduate studies and public health were all in attendance!
There are broad career opportunities within Infectious Diseases and this area always evolving. Teams are multidisciplinary and truly collaborate together regarding patient care, education and scholarly activities. To highlight the different avenues of career paths, the panelists discussed their role on the ID team and the path that led each one of them to a career within Infectious Diseases along with their current carrier and what each panelist finds rewarding about ID.
The student panel included:
Nursing: Ryan Ross from Nebraska Medicine; Kallie Hannam and Marilyn Van Gestel from Children’s
Nurse Practitioner: Whitney Knuth from Nebraska Medicine
Physician Assistants: Maggie Krejci from Children’s; Kim Meyer from Nebraska Medicine
Pharmacy: Dr. Philip Chung from Nebraska Medicine
MD: Dr. Andrea Green
