Division of infectious disease

Juanmanuel Gomez, M.D., MSCR

Assistant Professor

Dr. Gomez is originally from Bogotá, Colombia where he lived until 1996.  He earned his medical degree from Escuela Colombiana de Medicina in 1985.  He was in General Practice until 1989 when he entered Internal Medicine residency training at Hospital San Juan de Dios of Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá.

After earning his Internal Medicine degree in 1992, he became a faculty member at the same institution in the Department of Internal Medicine.  In 1996, he entered Infectious Diseases Fellowship training at the Medical University of South Carolina.  After completion of his Infectious Disease training in 1999, he decided to relocate to the United States, and underwent Internal Medicine residency training, in order to become board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Upon completion of his Internal Medicine training in 2002, he joined the Infectious Disease Division faculty as a Clinical Instructor. He was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2005.  During this time, he also earned a Master of Science in Clinical Research from the MUSC Graduate School.

Dr. Gomez’s outpatient clinical practice scope includes HIV medicine, as well as general infectious diseases problems and pre-travel counseling (Travel Clinic).  In the inpatient hospital setting, he provides consultation services giving expert advice in infectious diseases related medical problems.  He also has mastered the placement of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) becoming part of the team providing this service to MUSC patients. This procedure allows patients to receive various therapeutic agents at home, shortening their length of stay in the hospital and allowing them to recover in a more patient friendly environment. 

Dr. Gomez also participates in the teaching of medical students, as well as internal medicine residents and infectious diseases fellows.  His research focuses on outcomes of prosthetic joint infectious and database analysis related to infectious endocarditis and hospital acquired infections.  Soon, he will participate in the development of a hospital-wide antibiotic management program.
