Infectious Diseases Division Campuses

Mount Sinai Beth Israel

The Division of Infectious Diseases at Mount Sinai Beth Israel has a long history in being at the forefront of discovery. It was here that the AIDS virus was first identified and we have continued to be committed to the treatment and care of patients with HIV/AIDS as well as other infectious diseases. In addition to conducting clinical trials and drug studies for treatments for HIV-AIDS, New York's Mount Sinai-Beth Israel Hospital AIDS Clinical Trials Unit is involved in community outreach programs aimed at persons living with HIV/AIDS. We provide advanced training for fellows who wish to pursue a career in caring for patients with infectious diseases.
