Dr. David Norman Gilbert , MD

Infectious Disease and Internal Medicine


Personal Statement: I have had the extreme pleasure of watching the Internal Medicine Residency mature from one full-time faculty member (myself) in 1971 to the current status of over 15 full-time faculty, literally hundreds of volunteer teaching faculty, and a superb academic teaching clinic in a vibrant atmosphere of mutual respect and intellectual curiosity. I have always been driven by what is referred to as the "multiplier effect." It has not been enough to provide quality patient care to patients. I need to teach, and simultaneously learn, with residents and students, so that the knowledge and experience accrued can be "multiplied" and disseminated to an ever-greater number of physicians. For the highly motivated individual, I truly believe that our program represents an intellectual and academic feast. Areas of Academic Focus: All facets of infectious diseases with emphasis on antimicrobials. Current project ? Role of Chlamydia pneumonial in atherosclerosis.
