Infectious Diseases Division
Our Mission is to:
- Provide prompt diagnosis and comprehensive therapy of bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections in children
- Perform leading research into the causes, diagnosis, and therapy of pediatric infections with special emphasis on infections in the immunocompromised host
- Train tomorrow's leaders in pediatric infectious diseases practice
- Provide evaluation and treatment of children with known or suspected immune deficiency disorders including HIV
Recognizing that education is vital, faculty conduct core curriculum conferences and teach electives that provide one-on-one interactions supplemented by diagnostic microbiology, epidemiology, and the pharmacology of antibiotics. Trainees have the opportunity to become involved with the faculty's bench research and clinical research projects.
