Overview The division has grown significantly over the past ten years. For example, the increase in emerging infections such as West Nile virus and Hepatitis C, the increase and spread of multi-resistant “super-bugs” and drug-resistant tuberculosis and the appearance of infectious human pathogens as agents of bio-terrorism have all contributed to a greater need for this specialty and physicians specifically trained in the area.
