The faculty physicians are well-trained and board certified in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. They provide routine inpatient and outpatient consultations to children with complicated infections. The division also coordinates special clinical programs:

We treat all children from birth (including premature infants) to 18 years of age with complicated infections. Pregnant women with HIV infection are also seen as part of the Maternal-Child HIV Program. In the Travel Medicine Clinic, patients traveling abroad are seen for preventive vaccines and medications.
