The University of North Carolina Infectious Diseases Clinic (UNC ID Clinic) specializes in treating people with infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, TB, other sexually transmitted diseases, and acute and chronic infections. Outpatient medicine is a critical infectious diseases activity, and the UNC ID Clinic meets five days each week in a large and modern facility in UNC Hospitals. Located on the first floor of NC Memorial Hospital, the clinic provides care for more than 2300 patients. The clinic provides treatment of infections in returning travelers. A variety of outpatient infectious diseases are evaluated by the consult service.
The UNC ID Clinic is located on the first floor of NC Memorial Hospital. Once you enter the main NC Memorial Hospital entrance (you are on the ground floor), walk to the left side of the information desk and take the escalator up one floor. At the top of the escalator, make an immediate right followed by another right. The UNC ID Clinic is at the end of the hallway. If you require the use of an elevator, walk past the escalators to the left and make a right on the next hallway. Take the elevator up one floor to the first floor and follow the signs to the UNC ID Clinic.
