Division of Infectious Diseases

Our team of infectious disease physicians has a diversity of interests and strengths relating to clinical service provision, teaching and targeted research. Clinically and in conjunction with our specialist trainees, we manage a variety of community acquired conditions including tropical infectious diseases such as complicated malaria, melioidosis, dengue haemorrhagic fever, extrapulmonary tuberculosis and emerging infections. We have had a high profile in the management of SARS and H1N1 as it affected Singapore. On top of these conditions, we have a strong clinical research focus on health care associated infections including multi drug resistant pathogens, especially MRSA.


The Division also runs a travel and vaccination clinic, outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy (OPAT) unit and a multi-disciplinary HIV clinical service. In addition, we provide 24/7 emergency infectious disease advice for queries within NUH and also other medical centres as needed.
