Carlos Mejia-Chew is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Infectious Disease and the Medical Director of the Outpatient Parental Antimicrobial Therapy program.
Dr. Mejia specializes in general infectious disease, with a special focus on mycobacterial infections and global health. He’s currently developing a joint clinical with Pulmonology to care for patients with nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections. He attends on the general, bone and joint, and telemedicine ID consult services teaching fellows, residents, and students; and sees patients in the ID clinic, mainly patients with NTM infections. He also collaborates with Dr. O’Halloran and Dr. Samayoa, from Roosevelt Hospital Guatemala, on a large cohort of people living with HIV, looking at multimorbidity outcomes.
He is currently mentoring fellows, residents, and students in research as part of the Global Health Pathway, and those with interest in developing a better understanding the epidemiology and clinical outcomes in different hosts with NTM infections.
