Excellence in research, education, clinical care and service
Our clinicians include teachers and scientists in the specialty fields of cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology hepatology, hematology oncology, hospitalist medicine, infectious diseases, nephrology, primary care, pulmonary critical care, and rheumatology. Not only are individuals in these areas recognized as leaders in their respective fields, the Department of Medicine as a whole is known nationally for its contributions to clinical care, education, research, and service.
Physician Recognition Project
We strive to recognize the unique talents and contributions of our faculty in clinical care, research, education, and service, with the goal of sharing that information with as many students, residents, fellows, faculty, staff, patients, visitors, prospective students and faculty and community members as possible. While six faculty members were selected for the pilot project, each of our faculty members deserve recognition for their achievements. We are pleased the project will expand across the College of Medicine. The award-winning Faculty Showcase campaign is on display in the College's Atrium.
Each unit focuses on individual clinical, educational, and research objectives and academic activities including fellowship training, research, and other scholarly work:
- Cardiovascular Medicine
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
- Gastroenterology and Hepatology
- General Internal Medicine Research
- Infectious Disease
- Primary Care Internal Medicine
- Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine
