Sunday in the Park with Infectious Diseases: Not All Doom and Gloom!

George Seurat: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte

There have been a lot of visits to my last post-Infectious Diseases in Troubled Waters. Fortunately, not all is not doom and gloom!

This clever article , with a reference to Sunday in the Park With George (the musical based on George Seurat's artistic life), published in Journal of Infectious Diseases, highlights multiple infectious diseases career possibilities.

True. Like a blank art canvas with endless possibilities, a career path can be composed in many fashions.

There is a significant and ongoing need for infectious diseases physicians to manage the emergence of multidrug resistant organisms, antimicrobial stewardship programs, and respond to the growing demands of hospital infection prevention programs. Other career options include public health and private practice.

Not so bad, pay equity notwithstanding.
