Ronald Beaulieu

Dr. Beaulieu’s clinical expertise is in complicated musculoskeletal infections, and he teaches fellows on the dedicated MSK ID inpatient service focusing on the management of complex skin and soft tissue, surgical site, and bone/joint infections. He also staffs the General ID consult service for 6 weeks each year. His research focus is on antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention primarily in collaboration with the surgical services at GUH.

Since joining our faculty in 2020, he has taken an active leadership role within the GUH Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee and serves as a member of the MedStar System Antibiotic Subcommittee. He is currently leading a task force charged with reduction of inappropriate utilization of carbapenems as well as a multi-specialty task force seeking to audit, optimize, and standardize ASP practices in the management of musculoskeletal infections. Within infection prevention, he collaborates with the Department of Orthopedic Surgery to reduce prosthetic joint and spinal fusion infections.

His current research seeks to assess and leverage current knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding ASP at GUH to identify opportunities for more successful institution wide collaboration. He is also a co-lead for the GUH site in a multicenter RCT assessing the influence of IP strategies on the transmission of bacterial pathogens between patients and the peri-operative environment.
