Faculty and fellows are responsible for consultations on medical and surgical patients in this 650-bed facility which serves as a referral center for much of North Carolina. The ID team includes two or three postgraduate residents, three fourth-year medical students, and one or two pharmacy doctoral candidates. The group sees and discusses patients with an infectious diseases faculty member and a pharmacologist six days a week. 70-100 new consults are seen in an average month, and approximately 20-30 patients are actively followed. The range of infections seen is diverse, including routine medical and surgical problems, HIV and related conditions, and a wide range of infections in compromised hosts. The hospital has a busy heart, lung, liver, kidney and bone marrow transplant service. Mycotic and mycobacterial infections are also commonly encountered.
