Division of General Internal Medicine

The Division of General Internal Medicine has grown by leaps and bounds in the 36 years since it was established as a program to train internists who would practice general internal medicine in both inpatient and outpatient settings. As the division has continued to grow, it has also become active in clinical programs, educational programs and even research programs, both here on campus and through our affiliated partners.

Division Head

Our clinical programs offer the opportunity to learn how to provide quality medical care in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Outpatient practices include the Faculty Practice Office, which serves as a private practice for the campus and neighboring community. It offers primary care services, disease-management services and episodic-care services. University Health Center, also located on this campus, serves as an additional training site and offers primary care to patients in the surrounding community. The Baltimore VA Medical Center, which serves a large number of veterans, is staffed both full and part-time by members of the Division of General Internal Medicine and affiliated practitioners.

On the inpatient side, our division has been a leader in cost-effective care through the creation of several innovative services for the University of Maryland Medical Center. These services have been critical in reducing patient length-of-stay and charge-per-case for the hospital. In addition, our faculty attend on the inpatient service at the VA Medical Center and on the inpatient General Internal Medicine Rehab Service at University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute.

Our division has a strong commitment to the education of medical students and housestaff here on campus and at our affiliated institutions. The division provides key leadership; service on numerous committees for the school, the hospital and the practice plans; and is active in research through the Occupational Health Project.
