The goals of the Department of Infectology and Travel Medicine are to provide excellent clinical care of patients with infectious diseases and to educate students from the Faculty of Medicine and the next generation of infectious disease specialists.

The Department of Infectology and Travel Medicine comprises inpatient wards as well as outpatient clinics for patients with infectious diseases, but in addition we also have 3 special outpatient clinics:

  • a center for treatment of chronic viral hepatitis
  • a center for management and treatment of HIV
  • a center for tropical diseases and travel medicine

Management of patients in the department is improved with special diagnostic and imaging techniques financed by grants from the Slovak Ministry for Education and the EU (ultrasound diagnostic system, transient elastography fibroscan, optical microscopes, CRP quick test).
