The faculty of the Yale Section of Infectious Diseases provides general consultative care to patients with known or suspected infectious diseases. Faculty members are board certified in infectious diseases. Specialized services are offered in a variety of areas such as Traveler's Health, HIV and related disorders. Through the AIDS Care Program and the other clinical disciplines, comprehensive care for HIV positive inpatients and outpatients is also provided.
Among special services offered by this Section are the following:
- Nosocomial infection control and management
- Central nervous system infections
- Fungal infections
- Hospital epidemiology
- Traveler's medicine/international health
- HIV/AIDS Care
The services that the Yale Infectious Disease Group provide are comprehensive. In some circumstances, our services are chiefly consultative and collaborative, working hand-in-hand with referring physicians or groups. In other circumstances, our care is longitudinal and we serve as the principal caregiver for the patient. In nearly all instances, care is multidisciplinary, involving skilled nurses, dietitians, social workers, and other physicians.
Our practices are presently based at Yale-New Haven Medical Center, the Hospital of Saint Raphael, and the Veterans Administration - CT Healthcare System, West Haven. Inpatient care is provided on a 24-hour-a-day basis at both medical centers.
