Message from the Chief
Welcome to The Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases
At the undergraduate level, members of the Division teach first- and second-year students in lectures and one-on-one at the bedside; serve as preceptors for Physical Diagnosis and OSCE sessions; lecture to 3rd- and 4th-year medical students during their Medicine clerkships; and supervise students on infectious diseases or allergy clinical and research rotations. At the post-graduate level, members of the faculty serve as clinical and research mentors for resident physicians in both infectious diseases and allergy.
The Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases has several missions. These include providing superb patient care within our subspecialty disciplines; development and implementation of superior educational programs for medical students, residents, and subspecialty fellows; and performance of innovative clinical and/or basic research to advance the ability of physicians to diagnose and manage infectious diseases and allergic disorders.
Members of the Division serve as consulting physicians on the General and Bone Marrow Transplant/Leukemia/ Lymphoma Infectious Disease Consultation Services at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH). The Division Chief also serves as the Director of the Microbiology Laboratory at RWJUH. Susan E. Boruchoff, MD, serves as Hospital Epidemiologist, and Dr. Tanaya Bhowmick serves as Director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at RWJUH. Specialty care is provided for outpatients with allergic disorders, general infectious disease problems, HIV infection, HCV infection, as well as individuals planning international travel.
I hope you will find our Web pages informative and useful.
