Tatiana Bogdanovich, MD, PhD, was recently promoted to the rank of Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, retroactive to June 1, 2021. Dr. Bogdanovich trained as an Infectious Diseases (ID) Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh from 2009-2011 focusing on Transplant Infectious Diseases. Following fellowship graduation she joined the ID Division in 2011 at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine.
Dr. Bogdanovich practices as an attending of the Transplant Infectious Diseases (TID) service caring for complex patients with solid organ transplantations as well as for patients with hematologic malignancies including those receiving chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy and stem cell transplants. Dr. Bogdanovich’s research interests are focused on the prevention and treatment of infections in solid organ transplant recipients and Clostridioides difficile infection/fecal microbiome transplant (FMT). She was appointed Director of the Fecal Microbiome Transplant (FMT) program for the ID Division in 2016 and under her leadership, the program grew to include a dedicated C. difficile/FMT clinic within the CCID that provides comprehensive care to patients with recurrent C. difficile; established a volunteer stool bank for on-demand FMT doses from carefully selected donors; and, directed a clinical FMT laboratory with repository of pre- and post-FMT stool samples. She developed FMT protocols including the preparation of freeze-dried capsules for FMT that allowed the FMT to be administered during a regular outpatient visit, with the avoidance of an invasive procedure such as colonoscopy or nasogastric intubation.
Dr. Bogdanovich is recognized among her colleagues as a hard working clinician and dedicated educator. She is highly regarded by her patients and their families and is often praised for her ability to unhurriedly explain to them their diagnosis and plan of care. Her record of accomplishments in clinical care, teaching and leadership has enhanced the educational and clinical care missions of the ID Division and the Department of Medicine.
Please join us in congratulating Tatiana!
