Infectious diseases are illnesses caused by germs (such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi) that enter the body, multiply, and can cause an infection.
The UMMC Infectious Diseases program provides care for adults with suspected or known infectious diseases, including tuberculosis (TB), HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, and diseases caused by bacteria or viruses. Proper treatment is essential to prevent complications for those infected and to reduce the further spread of these diseases.
Our program provides a travel medicine clinic for those planning to visit other countries and offers immunizations required for overseas travel. Our board-certified specialists also supervise infection control and epidemiological activities at UMMC.
