Stanley Deresinski, M.D., F.A.C.P.
Dr. Deresinski received his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine, where he also completed two years of training in Internal Medicine. After interruption of his training by the U.S. Army (who insisted on his services in Viet Nam), he subsequently completed his Internal Medicine residency at Stanford University, where he also received three years of training in Infectious Diseases. In addition to board-certification in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases, he has received the “Certificate of Knowledge” in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers Health from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
Dr. Deresinski is Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California. He also maintains a private practice in Infectious Disease, HIV, and Travel Medicine in Redwood City, California where he is Hospital Epidemiologist at Sequoia Hospital. Dr. Deresinski is a Fellow of both the American College of Physicians and the Infectious Disease Society of America and is also a member of the HIVMA, the American Society for Microbiology and the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
Fifteen years ago, Dr. Deresinski established the not-for-profit AIDS Community Research Consortium in Redwood City, California, and was both Medical Director and Chairman of the Board for a decade. During that time, he was also Medical Director of AIDS services for Santa Clara County, California and head of the Division of AIDS Medicine at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. He was Principal Investigator for both the California Collaborative Treatment Group and the Stanford ACTG satellite at that site. Dr. Deresinski, along with Dr. Robert Wehbie, was one of the first Trainers for the Academic Alliance for AIDS Care and Prevention in Africa, helping to initiate that program in Kampala. He has continued to participate in research and administrative activities related to that program, an experience that has led to a heightened interest in global health issues.
Dr. Deresinski has been Editor as well as major contributor to Infectious Disease Alert for a decade. Dr. Deresinski has served as a reviewer for a number of journals and is currently a Section Editor for Clinical Infectious Disease, for which he writes “In the Literature”. He is currently chairman of the Guidelines Committee of the Infectious Disease Society of America.
His interests in clinical infectious diseases are broad, as reflected in his contributions to this newsletter, as well as his many and varied publications in the medical literature. He is the recipient of numerous teaching awards in Infectious Disease from Stanford University. He has previously been active in clinical and laboratory research in the areas of fungal and mycobacterial infections and participated in approximately 100 clinical trials of HIV disease and its complications, a number of which he designed and initiated. Dr. Deresinski’s multiple current activities provide him with extensive experience in the worlds of academic medicine, medical care in a public hospital, and private practice.
