Dr. Patrick Mazi joined the Department of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases as an Assistant Professor as of July 2023. He graduated from medical school at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He completed internal medicine residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. He completed two clinical fellowships at Washington University in St Louis–infectious disease and critical care medicine. During his training he also participated in the Mentored Training Program in Clinical Investigations and completed a master’s degree in clinical Investigation. Dr. Mazi specializes in clinical infectious diseases and critical care medicine with a special focus on invasive fungal infections, infections in immunocompromised hosts, and infections in critically ill patients in intensive care units.
His inpatient clinical duties include attending on the infectious disease transplant consult service and attending in the 7800 BMT ICU. He also provides coverage of the eICU and has an outpatient infectious disease clinic. His research is focused on clinical investigations of invasive fungal infections aimed at improving patient outcomes. Research activities include big-data, epidemiologic studies; clinical trials; and translational research projects. He recently wrote a manuscript on the geographic distributions of Histoplasma, Coccidioides, and Blastomyces which is the largest, patient-level update published since the 1960s. This data was available on mycoses.org, a website he co-developed to allow clinicians to look up local incidence of Histoplasma, Coccidioides, and Blastomyces. He is currently writing a K-level grant aimed at quantifying the risk of invasive Aspergillosis in novel immunomodulatory therapies. He enjoys teaching medical students, residents, and fellows while on clinical service. He has given lectures on fungal infections, sepsis, approach to fever in the ICU, HIV, and malaria.
