Infectious disease is an internal medicine sub-specialty focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, including those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Along with their specialized knowledge comes a particular insight into the use and effects of antibiotics. ID specialists also have additional training in infection control, immunology (how the body fights infection) and epidemiology (how infections spread). This specialty also offers an international travel health clinic to help you plan for safer, healthier international travel.
