  • The Division of Infectious Diseases

  • The Division of Infectious Diseases at Rhode Island and The Miriam hospitals provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient medical care to patients with any type of infectious disease. 

    Our hospitals are major teaching affiliates of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and host the nationally recognized Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program. In collaboration with the medical school, our mission is to provide state-of-the-art care, teach and mentor tomorrow’s health care providers, and pursue clinical and basic research. 

    The Division of Infectious Diseases’ areas of expertise include bacteriology, global health, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), infection control, virology and sepsis research. 

    A Regional Resource

    Our Infectious Diseases and Immunology Center, located at The Miriam Hospital, is the largest provider of outpatient care in Rhode Island for patients with infectious diseases and serves as a resource to community health care providers. 

    Infectious Diseases Vials

    The Center is the home to specialized outpatient clinics treating patients with Lyme disease, HIV, hepatitis and tuberculosis, among other conditions. 

    Coordinated with the Rhode Island Department of Health, our Community Infectious Disease Prevention Clinic also provides prevention, counseling, testing and treatment services. 

    Driving Innovation 

    The division represents one of the leading infectious diseases research programs in the nation. We are active in clinical, translational and basic science research, and annually receives close to $12 million in external funding.

    We support an extensive clinical trials program that helps to expand knowledge about and access to therapy for HIV, viral hepatitis and other infectious diseases.

    Our research and global health care initiatives are bolstered by several key partnerships, including the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), the Brown University School of Public Health and the Brown Global Health Initiative.
