Division of Infectious Diseases

The Division of Infectious Disease 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 and other health care providers, and with public health departments and other community agencies.

Our education mission includes efforts across a broad range of learners, including medical students and other professional students, residents and fellows, and education of practicing physicians, as well as education in areas of infectious diseases. Our research includes basic and clinical research in the areas of bacterial infectious, fungal infectious, hospital and epidemiology and infectious control, transplantation, tropical medicine, and bio-terrorism.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • HIV prevention and care
  • Infectious in immuno-compromised hosts
  • AIDS care
  • Endocarditis
  • Fungal Diseases
  • Staphylococcal Diseases
  • Mycobacterial Disease
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Infection Control
  • Nosocomial Infections

The Division is composed of 12 full-time faculty. The division is ACGME approved for 5 Fellowship positions. The primary practice sites are Froedtert Hospital and the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center. Clinical care at Froedtert Hospital is under the auspices of the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin. We also have affiliations with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, St. Joseph's Hospital, and the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, all located in Milwaukee.

The clinical program at the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin has grown rapidly recently. Our faculty members offer an array of clinical services for the diagnosis and management of patients whose problems are difficult to diagnose or hard to treat. We draw upon our skills and expertise as educators and researchers to develop the most appropriate and often unique solutions to patients' problems.
