Fred Gill, MD, FACP, FIDSA


After receiving his medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School, Dr. Gill trained in internal medicine as an intern and resident at New York University-Bellevue Hospital followed by research training as a research associate of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). He completed his clinical training as a medical resident and infectious disease fellow at Cornell-New York Hospital. Dr. Gill is an elected fellow of the American College of Physicians and the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

After many years of private practice in Bethesda, Maryland, Dr. Gill initiated the Internal Medicine Consultation Service for the Clinical Center in 1998. His practice in the Bethesda community combined primary care in internal medicine and consultation in infectious diseases. He served as chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, Rheumatology and Allergy and chair of the Infection Control Committee at Suburban Hospital and as attending physician on the Consultant Service of NIAID's Laboratory of Clinical Investigation. During this time, he participated as a co-investigator on research projects in the NIAID, the CC Clinical Pathology Department (now the Department of Laboratory Medicine), and the National Cancer Institute. Dr. Gill also led the development of the AIDS clinic for the Montgomery County Health Department and has chaired the AIDS Committee of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. He served on many committees, including the Maryland Governor's Advisory Council on AIDS, NIAID's Advisory Council for Lyme Disease and Suburban Hospital's Board of Trustees.

Since coming to the NIH in 1998 Dr. Gill has been chair of the CC Ethics Committee, principal coordinator for clinical education for the NIH Clinical Research Training Program, and an attending physician for NIAID's Infectious Disease Consultation Clinic.

Dr. Gill is currently Chief of the Internal Medicine Consultation Service for the Clinical Center and an Attending Physician for the Undiagnosed Disease Program, National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH Office of Rare Diseases Research. He is a co-investigator on protocols of NHGRI, NEI and NIAID, a medical monitor for NHGRI and NIAID protocols and a member of the Ethics Committee, Consult Review Committee, and Clinical Pastoral Education Committee of the Clinical Center.
