The research component of the Department of Internal Medicine's mission focuses on two important objectives:

  • The keen desire to participate in medical discoveries on a significant scale, and
  • The critical need to train the next generation of scientists who will contribute to those breakthroughs.

The department's innovative research program helps to make us unique. Quite simply, we maintain that doctors who teach and conduct research make better physicians, and that the research work we do in the department translates into better patient care.
