Welcome to the Division of Infectious Diseases & International Travel Health

The Mission

The Mission of the Division of Infectious Diseases at East Carolina University is to EDUCATE through outreach, innovation and excellence; SERVE the people of eastern North Carolina through the practice of knowledgeable, compassionate patient care; and conduct quality RESEARCH for the advancement of medical knowledge.

The Division of Infectious Diseases and International Travel Health is dedicated to the treatment of people living with many different infections in eastern North Carolina. Our clinic is proud to provide a variety of services to our clients:

  • Laboratory services
  • Consultative care for a wide array of infectious diseases
  • Ryan White ambulatory care and supportive services
  • Support groups
  • Access to research studies and clinical trials

Our physicians and physician extenders currently provide care for more than 1500 patients in our clinic in Greenville as well as for another 300 patients in clinics in surrounding counties, one of the largest HIV clinics in the southeast. Faculty members are currently collecting data to address the issue of the disproportionate infection rate of HIV in African-Americans. The division is involved in many clinical trials involving HIV therapies. These trials provide needed drugs to persons who may otherwise not be able to receive treatment.

Education is an integral component of our division. The division is involved with the education of medical students at The Brody School of Medicine as well as with residents at ECU Health Medical Center. Faculty members and staff within the division are providing education regarding HIV infection to high-risk groups in the community. Finally, the division has had an infectious diseases (ID) fellowship program since 2002. We have also recently created a combined fellowship training program in ID and Critical Care Medicine. We feel that the training of future infectious diseases clinicians is critical in our fight against the many infections that threaten our population today and in the years to come.
