We treat patients with infectious diseases clinical problems across the spectrum of illness, providing the opportunity to experience both the breadth and quality of clinical care.

Outpatient clinics at Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (an alliance between UW Medicine, Fred Hutch, and Seattle Children’s Hospital) serve patients from the region and across the country as well as from around the world.

The Infectious Diseases inpatient consult teams at each of these hospitals provide critical specialty services to patients with acute and potentially life-threatening diseases, while also developing standard practice and other clinical care guidelines in infection control.

We welcome students as part of the team and offer learning opportunities at the bedside, in the team room, and during clinical conferences. 

Third- and Fourth-Year Clinical Rotation

We offer a four-week clinical elective with the Infectious Diseases Inpatient consult service to UW and visiting students and residents.

You can choose from two clinical electives:

  1. General Infectious Diseases Consult service
  2. HIV Training with a mixture of outpatient and inpatient experience

Teams include AID faculty (attendings), Infectious Diseases Senior Fellow(s) and often an Internal Medicine Resident.
