    Patient Care

    Our team provides general infectious disease consults for the University of Louisville Hospital, a level I trauma center in Louisville, Kentucky, as well as the Robley Rex Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center also in Louisville. In addition, the division manages over 1600 HIV patients in the HIV Clinic, A Ryan White HIV/AIDs grant recipient, at the University of Louisville’s Ambulatory Care Clinic.

    Research

    Faculty, fellows and residents in the division are engaged in several clinical studies focusing on pneumonia and HIV including the Community-Acquired Pneumonia Organization’s International Cohort Study; the recently NIH-funded multisite study on Point of Care Testing for Community-Acquired Pneumonia; and the University of Louisville HIV Clinic Women Cohort Study. Furthermore, faculty in the division have published numerous journal articles in infectious disease and made many presentations at national and international conferences world-wide.

    Teaching

    Along with patient care and research, the division also supports high quality medical education through its infectious disease fellowship program which has been completed by over 30 physicians since 1975. This two-year fellowship provides physicians with clinical experience working with general infectious disease, HIV, bone and joint infections, and infection control.
