Site：The Department of Infectious Diseases
The Division of Infectious Diseases has offered standard, innovative, and comprehensive care for our patients since 1982. Through the leadership of our chief, Po-Yu Liu, MD, we offer a wide range of inpatient and outpatient clinical services related to the care of patients with infectious diseases. Our physicians conduct a broad array of both basic and clinical research activities in a variety of areas of clinical infectious diseases, microbiology, molecular epidemiology, and prevention and control of infection.
The Division offers clinical care for all major areas of infectious diseases. Our board-certified specialists offer extensive and compassionate care to diagnose and manage both common and complex diseases including:
Skin and Soft Tissue Infections
Urinary Tract Infections
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Compromised Host Infections
One of the core goals of our division is to offer excellent opportunities in clinical and research training in infectious diseases. Through our diverse faculty interests and partnerships with the Centers for Disease Control, R.O.C. (Taiwan), we actively promote and mentor our fellows’ research interests. We view the training of future teachers and investigators as our most enduring contribution to medical science.
The Division is committed to global collaboration in the study and diagnosis of diseases worldwide. Research in the Division focuses on the molecular epidemiology of bacterial and fungal infection; the mechanisms of bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents; HIV treatment outcomes; and studies on infections related to transplantation and other immunodeficiency disorders.
