Section Chief's Message
The Tulane University Adult Infectious Diseases Section is one of 9 internal medicine subspecialty sections within the Department of Medicine. We have 6 full-time and 4 part-time clinical faculty, as well as a PhD research scientist. Our clinical faculty provide infectious diseases inpatient and outpatient consultations at the main teaching hospital, Tulane Medical Center, as well as at Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans (formerly known as "Charity Hospital"), and at the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System.
Our Section has an ACGME-accredited ID Fellowship Training Program, accepting two new fellows every July 1. The training program is two years in duration: the first 12 months are clinical, including a month in the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, and the second 12 months are devoted to advanced clinical training, research or an MPH in Tropical Medicine or Epidemiology.
Faculty are involved in a variety of research endeavors, ranging from clinical trials of HIV treatment strategies, to fungal prophylaxis and tropical diseases. The 3 affiliated teaching hospitals concentrate a large number of tertiary care patients, resulting in ample opportunities for clinical research.
We are proud of our reputation as excellent clinicians and educators, and strive to provide compassionate and cutting-edge care to our patients.
For questions regarding our training program, research or clinical expertise, please contact us at 504-988-7316.
