The overall mission of the Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) is to provide the highest-quality clinical care, teaching, and research in the best academic tradition. The division consists of over 40 full-time and part-time affiliated and adjunct faculty members who individually have a broad range of interests but who work collectively to achieve this goal.

The division is responsible for general infectious disease consultations, the transplant infectious diseases service, the inpatient infectious disease service (a unit dedicated to the care of patients with HIV and tuberculosis), hospital epidemiology, and infection control and prevention at the NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital, CUMC. The HIV/AIDS program also provides multidisciplinary, comprehensive outpatient care for over 2,000 ambulatory individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

The Columbia University Center for HIV Prevention and Treatment Research supports research in several areas: new drug development and translational research, optimization of antiretroviral therapy, and HIV vaccine clinical trials. The division also supports active clinical and basic science research in HIV, bacterial pathogenesis, transplant immunology, health care epidemiology, and antimicrobial resistance. The division maintains strong links and collaborations with other divisions, departments, and schools within CUMC in order to facilitate research and training opportunities both domestically and internationally.
