In This Section


The Section of Infectious Diseases at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is dedicated to the highest ideals of teaching, clinical care and advancement of the science of Infectious Diseases. The nine faculty members and six fellows see patients at Temple University Hospital, the Fox Chase Cancer Center, Jeanes Hospital's stem cell transplant unit and in various clinics on the Temple campus. The Section has broad expertise in all aspects of Infectious Diseases including HIV care, hepatitis C care and infectious complications of transplantation.

We offer a top-notch clinical training fellowship in Infectious Diseases that is fully accredited for ABIM certification in our specialty. We also have a significant teaching role for residents interested in learning more about infections. Although most of our clinical slots are for Temple residents, visiting residents may be accommodated on request. We do not currently have openings for observerships but these may, on rare occasion, be available to residents at our affiliate institutions or visiting residents from other programs looking to learn from our patient base and faculty. We offer a structured and well-received teaching program for medical students.
