    The page was moved from Infectious disease (medical specialty) to Infectious medicine. I do not believe the move was indicated, as the sources call the specialty "Infectious disease", not "infectious medicine". It should probably be moved back.

    ID spe­cial­ists typ­i­cally serve as con­sul­tants to other physi­cians in cases of com­plex in­fec­tions, and often man­age pa­tients with HIV/AIDS and other forms of immunodeficiency.Al­though many com­mon in­fec­tions are treated by physi­cians with­out for­mal ex­per­tise in ID, the ID spe­cial­ist may be con­sulted for cases where an in­fec­tion is dif­fi­cult to di­ag­nose. They may also be asked to help de­ter­mine the cause of a fever of un­known ori­gin. ID spe­cial­ists can prac­tice both in hos­pi­tals (in­pa­tient) and clin­ics (out­pa­tient). In hos­pi­tals, ID spe­cial­ists help en­sure the timely di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment of acute in­fec­tions by rec­om­mend­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate di­ag­nos­tic tests to iden­tify the source of the in­fec­tion and by rec­om­mend­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate an­tibi­otic to treat the in­fec­tion. For cer­tain types of in­fec­tions, in­volve­ment of an ID spe­cial­ists may im­prove pa­tient outcomes.In clinic, ID spe­cial­ists can pro­vide...

    ID is his­tor­i­cally as­so­ci­ated with travel med­i­cine and trop­i­cal med­i­cine, as many dis­eases ac­quired in trop­i­cal and sub­trop­i­cal areas are in­fec­tious in nature.

    ID spe­cial­ists em­ploy a va­ri­ety of di­ag­nos­tic tests to help iden­tify the pathogen that is caus­ing an in­fec­tion. Com­mon tests in­clude Gram stain­ing, blood cul­tures, sero­log­i­cal tests, geno­typ­ing, and poly­merase chain re­ac­tion (PCR).

    ID spe­cial­ists em­ploy a va­ri­ety of an­timi­cro­bial agents to help treat in­fec­tions. The type of agent used de­pends on the or­gan­ism that is caus­ing the in­fec­tion. An­tibi­otics are used to treat bac­te­r­ial in­fec­tions; an­tivi­ral agents treat viral in­fec­tions; and an­ti­fun­gal agents treat fun­gal in­fec­tions.

    United States

    In the United States, ID is a sub­spe­cialty of in­ter­nal med­i­cine or pe­di­atrics (i.e., an in­ternist or pe­di­a­tri­cian trains for an ad­di­tional 2 years as a med­ical fel­lowto qual­ify as an ID spe­cial­ist and sit for the ID boards).
