Real world experience in an innovative setting

The Division of General Internal Medicine is proud to serve the educational needs of healthcare professionals across the university. We have a history of providing a rich and dynamic clinical learning experience in our clinics and our hospital based services. Each day, trainees from our internal medicine residency and our medical school accompany our faculty into our clinics and inpatient wards. They are provided with mentorship, guidance and encouragement as they hone their clinical skills.

Our clinical teams are comprised of professionals from the College of Pharmacy, the College of Social Work and the College of Nursing. We welcome trainees from each of these colleges as we believe that the future of medical care will require teamwork and coordination across many disciplines.
