The Department of Medicine (DOM) began medical instruction in 1909 with students receiving their MD degree in 1913. Over the past one hundred plus years, we have graduated thousands of students and have expanded to fourteen divisions. As an academic medical center, we have a tripartite mission (research, education, patient care). Most importantly, the Department of Medicine is a clinical department focused on human health. Our faculty and staff collaborate to support a broad spectrum of work from bench scientists doing basic research to educators training the next generation of physicians, to clinicians caring for patients in the hospital and clinics. We make inquiries at all levels that might translate into taking better care not only of the individual patients but also for whole populations of patients. In addition, the Department has a long history in computational science, quantitative science, health services research, informatics and epidemiology. If you would like to be a part of our history and help move us into the future, we welcome you to consider a career in the Department of Medicine.
