Infectious Disease Fellowship

Our Team - Fellows

Hiba Chehab, MD

1st Year Fellow

I completed my medical school training at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, where I did research on the epidemiology and susceptibility patterns of S. pneumoniae isolates from patients with invasive pneumococcal disease. My research sparked a passion for antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial stewardship.

During my pediatrics residency at Indiana University, I performed a retrospective review of children with periodic fever syndromes and am preparing a manuscript for publication. I also completed a quality improvement project on the use of influenza vaccine in a primary care clinic. I had the opportunity to present these two projects at IDWeek 2015 and 2016.

 

What attracted me to the fellowship program at IU was the diversity of diseases seen as well as the faculty's clinical expertise and mentorship to make sure their fellows have the best tools to explore all available opportunities. My areas of interest include antibiotic resistance, antimcrobial stewardship, and epidemiology. The fellowship is offering me the opportunity to pursue a Master's Degree in Clinical Research.

 

Outside work, I love to spend my time with my wonderful daughter. I am an enthusiastic soccer fan and also enjoy biking, swimming, traveling to new places, and taking nature walks.

Jackson Schneider, MD

1st Year Fellow

Originally from a small town in southern Indiana, my initial interest in Infectious diseases developed while working as a clinical microbiologist prior to medical school.

During my Med/Peds residency here at IU, I was simply amazed with the quality of our infectious disease faculty and diverse clinical experiences in addition to how well integrated the internal medicine and pediatrics programs are.  These aspects of the program, along with my continued interest in caring for patients of all ages, led me to stay at IU to pursue a combined infectious diseases fellowship in medicine and pediatrics.  

My particular areas of interest include clinical microbiology, next-generation diagnostic technologies, and clinical education. My current research is in conjunction with the Department of Pathology and Medical Microbiology where I study MALDI-TOF technology and how integrating rapid diagnostics can improve patient outcomes.

When not at work, I enjoy exploring the many restaurants Indianapolis has to offer, as well as its wide array of sports, arts, and culture.
