The Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of Michigan was founded in 1967. Since that time, our division has grown to over 30 faculty members and has become nationally recognized for an exemplary record of patient care, research, and education and training.
We offer diagnosis and treatment services for multiple types of complicated infections including chronic bone and joint infections, soft tissue infections, endocarditis, opportunistic infections, complicated urinary tract infections, fungal infections, Clostridium difficile infection, and many others. In response to emerging and growing needs over the years, we have established several programs and clinics including the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, Fecal Microbiota Transplant Program, HIV/AIDS Treatment Program, Overseas Travel Clinic, and Transplant Infectious Disease Service.
The Division of Infectious Diseases has a strong basic science and translational investigation program that includes virology, bacteriology, microbial diversity, mycology, and the intestinal microbiome. There is also a research component in our HIV/AIDS Treatment Program, Transplant Infectious Disease Service, and the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. In 2017, our division received over $14.5 million in federal, industry, and foundation funding to support our research activities.
We have a long-standing Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program where over 95 Infectious Diseases specialists have completed their fellowship training, since our first graduates in 1970.

In addition, our faculty are actively involved in educating and training students, residents, and fellows within the Department of Internal Medicine and other departments and programs at the University of Michigan including the Department of Epidemiology, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology curriculum.
