Dr. Wisna Jean earned a Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in Chemistry from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She then matriculated at Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ. During her medical school training, she completed a year of clinical research with Doris Duke Charitable Foundation-Clinical Research Fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York City. Under the mentorship of Dr. Mary Klotman (Duke University Medical School), she investigated the immunological factors that may contribute to the association between non-ulcerative sexually transmitted infections (particularly Chlamydia trachomatis) and HIV transmission. She then joined Temple University Hospital for Internal Medicine residency where she continued to pursue her career goals in Infectious Diseases. She participated in many research projects within the division involving readmission rates in patients with Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus bacteremia and Hepatitis C virus screening in the ambulatory care setting. Dr. Jean also was involved in global health clinical work in Haiti and Botswana throughout her journey as both a medical student and resident.  Dr. Jean completed her Infectious Diseases fellowship at the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Throughout her medical career she has been passionate about caring for critically ill patients. In her second year of fellowship, she pioneered a critical care track designed for second year infectious disease fellows to become an expert in the clinical management of patients in the critical care setting. She is currently a clinical faculty member of the Infectious Diseases division, primarily attending in the medical and surgical intensive care units as a consultant and is involved in a few projects in antimicrobal pharmacokinetics in the ICU setting.
