Message from the Division Chief

Welcome to the Division of Infectious Diseases at University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Topics related to infectious diseases and global health frequently make headlines these days as new diseases emerge, pathogens develop resistance to therapeutics and global travel fuel the spread of worldwide epidemics. Our Division is actively engaged in many aspects of infectious diseases and global health through robust clinical care programs, research, education and public health interventions, both locally and around the world.

Faculty members and trainees of the division of Infectious Diseases provide compassionate and evidence-based care across a vast spectrum of practice locations, including our flagship University of New Mexico Hospital and The Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center. Affiliated centers such as Truman Health Services and Project ECHO serve as partners in our care network.

Our Division maintains active training programs for fellows, residents and students with several new initiatives in curriculum development and educational design. Faculty in the division of Infectious Diseases are engaged in many clinical, translational and basic research programs, ranging from investigating the pathogenesis of non-tuberculous mycobacteria to clinical outcomes in patients with Hepatitis C infection. 

We are honored to serve rural New Mexico and the Four Corners Region including Colorado, Utah and Arizona, as well as areas of Texas. We provide consultative care to clinically complex patients and treat incredibly diverse pathology. The University of New Mexico is the epicenter of several unique disease pathologies including Hanta Virus and Plague. We also have some of the highest rates of hepatitis C nationally. The division of Infectious Diseases is a national leader in treatment of these disease states through innovation and the use of state of the art technology. Several of our Division members are in leadership roles at Project ECHO and are involved in the spread of the ECHO model for healthcare workforce capacity building globally for HIV, viral hepatitis and TB. We also staff the largest HIV clinic in the state, Truman Health Services

The vast consortium of clinical and research partners offers an outstanding environment for the study of infectious diseases and global health. We are excited and proud of the many accomplishments within our division and invite you to learn more about our activities.
