About the Division
The faculty of the UC Division of Infectious Diseases is among the national leaders in basic science research in infectious diseases, the care of patients with HIV infections, tuberculosis and global health clinical care, education and research.
The division consists of 18 full-time physicians and basic scientists engaged in research, patient care and teaching. These activities are conducted at UC Health University Hospital, Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and the Infectious Diseases Center.
The faculty is committed to:
- Superb clinical care delivered with respect and compassion
- Education of our trainees with the tools necessary for lifelong learning
- Research in infectious diseases to benefit mankind in the understanding, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases
The division strives to achieve these goals by capitalizing on each faculty member's strengths to ensure meaningful progress in each discipline.
The division's basic and clinical research endeavors promote the acquisition of knowledge concerning infectious diseases and lead to innovative strategies to combat pathogens. Likewise, our research achievements translate into improved patient care and medical education.
The infectious diseases division is committed to providing the tools for physicians to become leaders in infectious diseases in the 21st century. We offer an active fellowship training program and closely interacts with colleagues in the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the Cincinnati community.
The fellowship's mission is to train physicians to become outstanding clinicians and investigators of infectious diseases. The fellowship includes training in all clinical aspects of infectious diseases, diagnostic microbiology (bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology) and clinical and basic laboratory research.
Fellows have graduated our program to assume leadership positions in academics, public health and industry.
