Training Program in Pathogenesis and Host -Pathogen Interactions (HPI) Welcome The Training Program in Pathogenesis and Host Pathogen Interactions (HPI) is an interdepartmental teaching and research program which currently involves the participation of 10 faculty from multiple disciplines within the Boston University School of Medicine. Students are admitted to the HPI training program through the Department of Microbiology where they follow a program specifically designed for students in the HPI. The program of study includes a literature-based curriculum, prominent guest speakers, and spirited journal clubs as well as extensive hands-on laboratory training. Small class size and extensive interaction with the faculty provide students with the opportunity to customize their training according to their specific scientific interests.
