The Division of Infectious Diseases at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine provides expert clinical consultation through Feinberg-affiliated hospitals and care sites, conducts cutting-edge clinical and laboratory research, and offers opportunities for research training in infectious diseases. The Division has twenty-one full time faculty and eight to nine postdoctoral fellows who are engaged in a two to three year training program focused on the principles and practice of infectious diseases. Fellowship training is accredited by the ACGME.
Through our hospital-affiliates, our faculty members provide inpatient and outpatient consultations for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with general infectious disease problems, HIV infection, infections complicating solid organs and stem cell 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 Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
