Bettina Fries, MD, FIDSA
Division Chief

Welcome to the Infectious Disease Division of the Department of Medicine at Stony Brook University. Our division is dedicated to enhancing prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. Our mission is enhanced by our strong emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, commitment to life-long self-learning, and professionalism.

The mission of the Stony Brook University ID Division emphasizes both a global perspective, as well as maintaining excellence and compassion in every clinical encounter with patients from our community in Suffolk County. There are excellent research opportunities available both through the program faculty as well as through collaborations with faculty of the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. The Stony Brook Infectious Disease Division is deeply committed to excellence in teaching of medical students, residents, and ID fellows as well as fostering social and intellectual diversity.
