Why I Love ID:
“The patients I encounter as an Infectious Diseases specialist are so fascinating. Because we are interested in all aspects of a patient’s history, ID docs get to learn some cool things from their patients. I once had a patient who trained animals for show competitions, and another who taught me how to polka! I love the fact that we still get opportunities to build lasting relationships as we journey with patients, but also have the ability to truly cure disease through antibiotics. Finally, I love ID because it is a routine part of our day to be educators (of patients, trainees, nurses, etc), and the best way to fall in love with something more is to talk about it all the time!”
