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:
- CNS infections
- Skin and Soft Tissue Infections
- Urinary Tract Infections

One of the core goals of our division is to offer excellent opportunities in clinical and research training in infectious diseases.
