Welcome to the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin website. The website introduces each of our division’s faculty with a description of their backgrounds. Potential trainees can learn more about our clinical and research activities. The website is updated frequently to bring current information to our visitors.
The Division of Infectious Diseases has three main missions: public service; education; and research. Our public service mission is manifested primarily through our clinical care of patients with infectious diseases, but also through interactions with hospitals, health care providers, public health departments and other community agencies. Our education mission includes efforts across a broad spectrum of learners, including medical and other health care professional students, residents and fellows, and continuing education for practicing physicians, as well as community education in areas of infectious diseases. We conduct basic and clinical research in the areas of HIV/AIDS, HIV prevention strategies, human retrovirology (HTLV), bacterial pathogenesis, host-parasite interactions, hospital epidemiology and infection control.
Our clinical activities and training programs are centrally based at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital and Clinics and the Clement Zablocki VA Medical Center. Additionally, our faculty and housestaff are affiliated with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, St. Joseph’s Hospital (Milwaukee), St. Joseph’s Hospital (West Bend), and the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin.
