The medical treatment of infectious diseases falls into the medical field of Infectiology and in some cases, the study of propagation pertains to the field of Epidemiology. Generally, primary care physicians or internal medicine specialists initially diagnose the infection. The work of the infectiologist therefore entails working with both patients and general practitioners, as well as laboratory scientists, immunologists, bacteriologists and other specialists.
