About Us

Our Mission:

The Division of Infectious Diseases participates in the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center’s tripartite mission of providing creative leadership and quality initiatives in patient care, medical education, and medical research.

Our Division faculty are committed to excellence in patient care, and oversee a continuous quality improvement (CQI) program designed to ensure high quality care and outcomes. Faculty include hospital epidemiologists at both the University of Kentucky Hospital and the Lexington Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and the physicians who staff the Division’s 2 outpatient clinics located in the Kentucky Clinic, adjoining the UK Hospital: Bluegrass Care Clinic and Infectious Diseases Clinic.

Our faculty also maintain the highest of educational standards by holding and participating in medical student lectures, education conferences/forums, the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program, and KYAETC.

Division research bridges the gap between basic science research and clinical applications in the treatment of infectious diseases.
