Clinical Services

Our faculty are well-trained and board certified in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. We provide routine inpatient and outpatient consultations to children with complicated infections.

  • We provide comprehensive clinical evaluations of children with infectious disease
  • We conduct research in otitis media, respiratory virology and airway inflammation.
  • We are active participants in both medical student and resident education and rotations.

In addition, we 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.
