An infectious disease specialist is a doctor of internal medicine who is qualified as an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Their extensive training focuses on all kinds of infections, including those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Many ID physicians specialize in treating patients with infections due to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the cause of AIDS. Infectious Disease also provides HIV prevention services in the PrEP clinic.
