S4 Ep5: Cross-Specialty Conversation - Infectious Diseases with Dr Sumon Chakrabarti

February 21, 2023

Dr. Sumon Chakrabarti is Kerri's guest for this fascinating deep dive into questions about the cross-over worlds of Derm and Infectious Diseases. Together they discuss skin infections, infectious diseases as they relate to some of the newer medications and then some pandemic and epidemic topics like Monkeypox. It's a great conversation with lots of amazing pearls, and for his part, Dr Chakrabarti says he's thrilled to be discussing something other than COVID for the first time in a few years! 

Dr. Sumon Chakrabarti is a lecturer of Infectious Diseases at the University of Toronto. His clinical practice at Trillium Health Partners incorporates post-travel and tropical medicine. He also serves in a leadership capacity as division head of Infectious Diseases. 

Our Residents' Questions this week come from Dr Kaylin Bechard of the University of Alberta and Dr. Patrice Lagacé from McGill University. Thank you both!
