Fellows and faculty actively participate in teaching and patient care at the three major hospitals within the University of Alabama at Birmingham Medical Center. Our strong clinical presence is evidenced by two separate consult services (one in the 1100 bed University Hospital which focuses on opportunistic infections in compromised hosts such as BM and solid organ transplant recipients, bone/joint and CNS infections in orthopedic, trauma and neurosurgical patients, and infections in neutropenic/cancer patients; another service combines HIV/AIDS consultation at University Hospital and general infectious diseases consultation at the VA Medical Center and the county hospital). ID faculty and fellows also provide care in a cross-section of ambulatory clinics which target general ID, HIV/AIDS, STD, tuberculosis and international travel.
