Emphasis is placed on the appropriate delivery of diagnostic tests, infection prevention and control, antimicrobial stewardship and clinical consultations in both inpatient and outpatient settings, on the investigation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases. The five-year program is comprised of a basic clinical year, two core years of medical microbiology, one year in an elective program approved by the program director, and one year of approved clinical training in infectious diseases. The residency is one of five streams in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (www.pathology.ubc.ca) and offers opportunities for interactions in the sub-disciplines and specialties within anatomic, general, and neuropathology, and in medical biochemistry.
