The Division of Infectious Diseases of the Washington University School of Medicine is a regional and national leader in infectious disease clinical care, education, research, and public health.  In affiliation with Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the Division provides a diverse scope of expertise ranging from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), transplantation and oncology infectious diseases, and surgical infections to hospital epidemiology, infection prevention, patient safety, and global medicine.

 Our mission is to provide outstanding clinical care, conduct ground-breaking research, and train the next generation of leaders in academic medicine and infectious diseases.  Our clinical program serves patients across several inpatient consultation services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital as well as in a comprehensive ambulatory practice.  The Division has over thirty full-time faculty members who are engaged in various aspects of basic, translational, clinical, and epidemiologic research.  Our fellowship program has trained more than 120 infectious disease fellows as well as numerous graduate students and post-doctoral research fellows and countless residents and medical students.

The Infectious Diseases Fund - Dr. Gerald Medoff has been among the most influential leaders in the School of Medicine in the past half century, and the contributions of Dr. Medoff to the field of medicine are clearly reflected in the quality of the School and in the extraordinary individuals he has mentored. We believe that you share our sense of pride in what we have been able to build, much of which is due to the leadership of Dr. Medoff.  This year, unrestricted gifts directed to the Division will be used to honor  Dr. Medoff with a lecture in his honor.  Please consider a gift toward this effort.
