Welcome to the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of Pittsburgh!

The goals of the Division of Infectious Diseases (ID) are to:

  • Provide state-of-the-art care that is easily accessible by patients and that is responsive to the needs of our physician colleagues
  • Develop knowledgeable and respected researchers, clinicians and educators through mentoring in our fellowship training program
  • Rigorously train medical students and residents in the discipline of ID
  • Develop "cutting edge" laboratory and clinical research that improves the standard-of-care for treatment and prevention of infectious diseases
  • Protect the public health from natural and man-made epidemics of infectious diseases

 

An Overview of the Division:

  • Inpatient Clinical Services: Consult teams round at UPMC Presbyterian University Hospital, UPMC Magee, UPMC Mercy Hospital, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, and the VA Pittsburgh Health System (VAPHS). There are dedicated rounding teams for general ID, surgical ID, and transplant ID.
  • Outpatient Clinical Services: Outpatients are seen in infectious diseases clinics on the 7th floor of Falk Medical Building. The General ID Clinic provides follow-up for inpatients with infections as well as consultation for referrals made from primary care providers. The UPMC HIV/AIDS Program provides primary care to approximately 1,500 HIV-infected persons from the tri-state area. The Immunocompromised ID Patient Clinic provides follow-up for solid organ or stem cell transplant recipients with infections as well as pre-transplant evaluation.
  • Research Activities: A vital activity of the Infectious Diseases Division is laboratory, translational and clinical research. These activities are listed by both investigator and laboratory. Major research strengths of the Division are in HIV-AIDS, transplant ID, antimicrobial resistance, nosocomial and community-acquired infections. Pre-doctoral and post-doctoral Ph.D. training positions are available. For more information on Division research activities and opportunities, please click here.
  • Training Activities: Division faculty provide exceptional educational opportunities for graduate students, medical students, medical residents, and postdoctoral Ph.D and M.D. fellows. For more information on the ID Fellowship and other training opportunities click here.
