Transplant-Oncology Infectious Diseases Program

Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is one of the largest transplantation centers in the United States. Since 1988, more than 12,000 patients have received solid organ transplants at CUIMC.

The Transplant-Oncology Infectious Diseases Program provides expert care in the prevention, evaluation, and management of infectious diseases in solid organ (kidney, liver, lung, heart, pancreas, and small intestine) and bone marrow transplant recipients and patients with hematological malignancies. Additional services provided by the program include:

  • Educational support to CUIMC residents, fellows, and staff
  • Collaboration with the solid organ, leukemia, lymphoma, and bone marrow transplant programs in the creation and review of “best practice” protocols
  • Patient-oriented clinical research

The program’s inpatient care is divided between two consultation services:

  • Solid Organ Transplant Infectious Diseases
  • Malignant Hematology/Bone Marrow Transplant Infectious Diseases

The services are staffed by transplant-oncology infectious diseases faculty members and a dedicated nurse practitioner. A physician assistant, infectious diseases fellows, medicine residents, as well as clinical pharmacy managers also rotate on the services on a routine basis. The Transplant-Oncology Infectious Diseases Program also offers daily outpatient infectious diseases consultations for pre- and post-transplant patients.
