Our physicians have extensive clinical experience in the care of patients living with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). We are actively involved in clinical research for the study of new treatments for HIV.
In 1999, our HIV/AIDS program was awarded an HIV Early Intervention Services (EIS) grant under the Ryan White Care Act, Title III. This grant was provided to help provide high quality comprehensive medical care to patients infected with the HIV virus.
Our fellowship program is one of our greatest strengths and achievements. We encourage all prospective fellows to review the details of our two-year fellowship program.
Focus areas of our fellowships include inpatient consultations, intensive care, outpatient clinic, HIV/AIDS, hospital epidemiology and infection control, clinical microbiology, and travel medicine.
