The Division of Infectious Diseases is comprised of a diverse faculty with the shared goal of excellence in patient care, research, and education. Although the majority of our work takes place on the Westwood Campus, at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center, and at the CARE Center in Century City, our reach extends worldwide through the Program in Global Health.
At each of these sites and around the world, our faculty members are engaged in diagnosing and treating patients with infections. We provide consultation services to help manage infections both in-patient and out-patient settings.
We specialize in the care of general medical and surgical patients, departing or returning travelers, transplant and other immuno-compromised patients, and people infected with HIV. Members of our faculty are also responsible for improving the health of the broader UCLA community through the Antibiotic Stewardship Program and Hospital Infection Control and Epidemiology. At each of our practice sites our faculty are also perform a broad range of research activities - from hospital epidemiology to HIV prevention; from TB and HIV vaccine development to new treatment strategies for HIV; from studies of viral hepatitis to swine flu, just to name a few.
In addition to our clinical and research programs our faculty serve as role models and mentors while training the ID physicians of tomorrow through our Fellowship Program.
