The primary mission of the Columbia University Transplant ID service is to provide expert care in the evaluation and management of infectious diseases among solid organ transplant recipients. Clinically, the service provides both inpatient and outpatient consultations for patients who are undergoing transplant evaluation as well as those already transplanted. Additional services provided by the program include 1) educational support to residents, fellows and staff; 2) collaboration with each transplant program in the creation and review of “best practice” protocols; 3) clinical research in collaboration with transplant programs.
The inpatient service provides 24/7 inpatient consultations and assistance to all transplant patients from all groups via a dedicated pager. The service is overseen by Drs. Brian Scully and Marcus Pereira and staffed by Elizabeth Istorico. ID fellows rotate on this service.
The transplant ID service also works with transplant teams in the weekly outpatient clinic to assist with discharge follow-ups as well as outpatients consultations. This includes pre-transplant infectious disease evaluations. The transplant ID clinic is located at the Transplant Center at Presbyterian Hospital 14 floor. Clinic sessions take place every Wednesday morning.
