Dr. David Wyles, New ID Division Chief at Denver Health


The Division of Infectious Diseases is delighted to announce the appointment of David Wyles, MD as Chief of the Infectious Diseases Division in the Department of Medicine at Denver Health (DH). A native of Ohio, Dr. Wyles attended Northwestern University for undergraduate studies and medical school, and completed his internal medicine residency and ID fellowship at the University of Colorado. Since then, he has been at the University of California at San Diego, where he is Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of the UCSD Infectious Diseases HCV clinic, and Director of the Microbiology course for the UCSD School of Medicine.
     Dr. Wyles has achieved an international reputation in the management of hepatitis C infection, having done research both as a basic scientist and investigator in several important clinical trials, leading to major advances in this discipline. He is currently a member of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group Hepatitis Transformative Science Group, International AIDS Society-USA Hepatitis Board, and International Coalition of Hepatology Education Providers, and serves as a panelist on both the IDSA/HIVMA and AASLD/IDSA national Guidelines committees for diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C.
     At Denver Health he will be succeeding Dr. Connie Price (now Chief Medical Officer at DH), leading a division with model programs in Infection Prevention and Antimicrobial Stewardship and a busy, challenging ID consultation service. He plans to expand his research activities in hepatitis C, with collaborators in the Department of Medicine, Denver Public Health and the University. Dr. Wyles says: “I am excited and honored to be coming back to Denver Health; in many ways it feels like coming home. The people and the patient population they serve make this a unique and fabulous place to work.” He will be starting in mid-October, 2016. Welcome back, Dave!
