DEPARTMENT OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES
The Department of Infectious Diseases at the Alfred Hospital is one of the largest and most comprehensive infectious diseases clinical services in the country. It is also an academic Department within the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Central Clinical School, Monash University and is a premier centre for clinical and biomedical research and education.
The Department offers expertise in general infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, hospital-acquired infections and antimicrobial resistance, infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship, travel-related infections, viral hepatitis, sexually-transmitted infections, and infections in immunocompromised hosts including critical care, burns, cystic fibrosis and solid organ (lung, heart and kidney) and stem cell transplant recipients. We have four active clinical units at any one time with a dedicated general infectious diseases inpatient unit, an HIV inpatient unit, a general consultative service and an immunocompromised host service. Through our Alfred Infectious Diseases Training Program we provide outstanding opportunities for advanced training in infectious diseases.
One of the premier services provided by the Department is the Victorian State-wide HIV Service, which provides a comprehensive program for individuals and populations affected by or infected with HIV in Victoria. This ranges from acute care and chronic illness management, to health maintenance, prevention and health promotion. Complications of HIV and antiretroviral therapy, in addition to the myriad of co-morbidites such as cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, renal impairment, viral hepatitis and liver disease, drug and alcohol related disorders, neurocognitive impairment and psychiatric illness are all managed in a multidisciplinary ambulatory care clinic.
We are geographically located within a vibrant Alfred Medical Research Precinct, which provides a seamless transition between clinical care, research and education. In collaboration with other Monash Partners, we have recently been named as one of four Academic Health Science Centres by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council.
We are driven by excellence in patient care and this is supported by our passion for research, quality improvement and infectious diseases education and training.
