    The mission of the division of pediatric infectious diseases is to provide expertise in the diagnosis, management and prevention of pediatric infectious diseases, including antimicrobial therapy, appropriate use of microbiological and immunological tests, and immunizations. In addition to patient care, the division is actively involved in medical education and research.

    Patient care services include inpatient consultations and outpatient services. The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Clinic sees patients on the lower level of Hasbro Children's Hospital. All appointments are scheduled after a consultation with the child's primary care provider and one of our infectious disease attending physicians.

    The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Clinic meets Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 5 p.m.
