Our teaching faculty bring experience from a diverse cross-section training models, ranging from large urban teaching centers to community based programs. Their expertise includes primary care, medical subspecialties and hospital-based internal medicine. They are committed to providing an excellent medical education, imparting not only medical knowledge, but also approaches to bedside interactions, ethical issues, cost efficiency and the nuances of different practice models. We incorporate lectures from medical and business executives into our curriculum, to enrich the resident’s understanding of the non-medical aspects of medicine. The overall experience is designed to prepare you for community-based internal medicine practice.

We have included our Core faculty members, General Internal Medicine Faculty, Subspecialty Faculty. While these physicians represent a large portion of the teaching faculty, there are additional physicians who provide educational opportunities and support.
