The Division of Infectious Diseases at the Feinberg School of Medicine offers a range of outpatient and inpatient services for the care of patients with infectious disease problems. Our mission is to provide consultations for clinical care, undertake cutting-edge clinical and laboratory research, and offer opportunities for research training in infectious diseases. The Division has nine full-time faculty members, each of who receives external funding from federal agencies and various foundations for clinical and/or basic scientific research into the pathogenesis and treatment of viral and bacterial infections. The Division has nine postdoctoral fellows who are engaged in a 2-year training program that focuses on the principles and practice of infectious diseases. Fellowship training is certified by the ACGME.
Inpatient and outpatient consultations are provided for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with general infectious disease problems, HIV infection, organ transplantation and other immunodeficiencies, sexually transmitted diseases, and tropical diseases. The Division oversees the Hospital Epidemiology and Infection Control Program and the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program for the affiliated hospitals. The Division of Infectious Diseases ranks 14th among Top 20 Best AIDS Programs.
