Academic and Clinical Excellence
Primary Care Internal Medicine (PCIM) specializes in diagnosing, treating, and preventing medical problems in adolescents, adults, and the elderly. We work as a team to provide a medical home for our patients in clinic and around-the-clock care for our patients admitted to the hospital.
We strive to:
- Deliver compassionate, responsive, integrated care
- Teach the science, art, and joy of medicine
- Promote knowledge through research and education
- Cultivate a collegial and sustainable practice environment
- Collaborate to improve the quality and safety of patient care
- Enhance the health and well-being of our community
Division faculty members play a pivotal role in teaching and directing courses for a broad audience of clinical learners. Our educational programs cover a wide spectrum, from primary care to tertiary care, communication skills to statistics, and from pre-medical students to post-graduate continuing medical education.
We have a diversity of scholarly interests among our faculty. Research projects range from immunizations to models for chronic disease care, such as the medical home.
