Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
Wendy Stead MD is the Program Director of the BIDMC Infectious Diseases Fellowship and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Stead received a BA from George Washington University, her MD from the University of Massachusetts and completed her Internal Medicine Residency and ID Fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, joining the BIDMC faculty with a joint appointment in the Divisions of Infectious Diseases and General Medicine and Primary Care in 2003. She completed a Rabkin Fellowship in Medical Education in 2010 and dedicates herself to patient care, medical education and curriculum development work at the residency and fellowship levels, winning many awards for teaching, mentorship and humanistic care. She currently serves as Chief of the Hermann Blumgart Firm for BIDMC’s Internal Medicine Residency Program. Her active research interests include examining the effects of interdisciplinary education strategies on collaboration between specialty services, communication skills in patients with opioid use disorders, trainee wellness and gender bias in academic medicine. She also loves narrative medicine and writing stories about her inspiring patients and has been fortunate to have several essays published in JAMA’s Piece of my Mind. She is proud mother of Izzy, age 17, and Nicky, age 14, who have been locked inside their house since COVID hit the Boston area in March. If she doesn't make it to IDWeek this year it will be because they have tied her up in the basement in a Lord of the Flies type scenario. Please carry on without her.
