This long-standing departmental autonomy has provided the opportunity for accelerated growth and expansion of the diverse activities associated with patient care, research and education. The department has created a desirable patient care model that has enabled continued expansion of patient volume. This large and diverse patient population provides a rich environment for graduate medical education and research.
The educational mission within our department consists of medical student and resident training as well as several fellowship programs.

We provide a wide variety of educational programs, ranging from post-graduate fellowships in clinical and research activities to opportunities for interested high school students.
