Pulmonary Critical Care
Infectious Disease specialists are internists with additional training in the treatment and prevention of infections. Our primary job is taking care of people with infections. This includes such diseases as AIDS and malaria, syndromes like pneumonia and meningitis and conditions such as unexplained fevers. We assist hospitals in controlling the spread of infections within the hospital. Practicing Infectious Diseases requires expertise in microbiology, epidemiology, antibiotic use, and pharmacology.
