EDUCATION & TRAINING
Faculty members in the Division of General Internal Medicine have established a strong presence as educators and educational leaders for both medical student and residency programs.
In addition, the Division of General Medicine is a leader in development of evidence-based medicine within the Medical School. Faculty educators have developed and delivered excellent faculty development workshops in applying and teaching evidence-based medicine.
A Critically Appraised Topic bank (CAT-bank) with a format similar to the ACP Journal Club has also been developed to which faculty, residents, and students contribute.
Research & Scholarship
Research and scholarship activities within the Division of General Internal Medicine are focused primarily in six topic areas:
- Healthcare utilization & health disparities
- Innovations in medical education
- Behavioral and psychosocial health and lifestyle change
- Substance use & tobacco control
- Optimizing clinical care and quality improvement
- Global Health
Our faculty use various methodological approaches to address important research, clinical, and educational questions, including behavioral clinical trials, observational studies, focus groups, and health informatics and “big data.”
For your safety, and to comply with current COVID-19 best practices, our Division is currently unable to offer observership or shadowing opportunities. Thank you for your interest and understanding.
