Infectious Disease

H1N1 virus

Infectious disease doctors specialize in infections that are unique to children and differ from those in adults. We offer antimicrobial therapies for infectious diseases caused by bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic agents. We offer the expertise needed to diagnose and manage these, including:

  • Community-acquired and hospital-acquired infections
  • Infections in immunocompromised and chronically ill children
  • Infections caused by resistant organisms
  • Infections in refugee and immigrant children

Our faculty has the expertise to diagnose and manage these diseases, including:

Patient consultation on a broad range of infectious diseases
Expertise in public health and community planning
Advise health care providers facing difficult decisions with their patients
Train our next generation of physicians
