Dr. Vo specializes in HIV and general Infectious Diseases. He has been actively engaged in the care of people with HIV since completing his residency in 2018. He is committed to improving patient care through his work in quality improvement and research. His current work focuses on understanding the barriers and facilitators to engagement in HIV care at the Washington University Infectious Diseases clinic, particularly among high risk, marginalized populations. His previous work includes a quality and patient safety research project that found that early involvement of ID specialists in the management of patients with Enterococcal BSI was associated with decreased mortality.
Dr. Vo also has a particular interest in caring for the underserved population. He has worked in several volunteer-based, free clinics as a medical student and medicine resident and has volunteered his time on a few occasions to work abroad in resource-poor areas. On his most recent trip with the Himalayan Health Exchange to Northern India in 2019, he provided medical care to the indigenous people living in remote villages located high in the Himalayas and served as a preceptor to medical students. Dr. Vo will join the Infectious Diseases Division faculty as an academic clinician in 2021. He will continue to care for patients living in underserved areas and continue his work on improving engagement in HIV treatment and care. He is inspired by his hardworking immigrant parents who have provided him with endless support. In his free time, he enjoys trail running and exploring local and national parks.
