The Division of Infectious Diseases offers clinical services in areas of hospital consultative services, as well as outpatient services for HIV/AIDS, Lyme disease, international travel and immunization, adult immunization, bone and joint infection, multi-drug resistant organisms including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and conditions requiring long term antibiotic management.
The division plays an active role at the UConn School of Medicine and post-graduate medical training programs, including course leadership in core medical school classes including the Mechanisms of Diseases class and Community Health Research Methods class, MAX medicine, Human Development and Health, as well as providing more clinically-oriented educational experiences in tropical medicine, hospital and off-based infectious diseases, and travel and immunization services. The division promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobial agents through co-directorship of the UConn Health Antimicrobial Stewardship Program.
Division members present comprehensive updates of the field through continuing medical education forums for physicians and nurse practitioners and are involved in local, national, and international clinical research. Through collaborations with the New England AIDS Education and Training Center, the division supports the continued HIV-related medical education of medical providers in the state as well as the Connecticut Department of Correction.
