General Internal Medicine
The Department of Medicine at the University of Missouri will be a national leader among academic internal medicine departments through quality and innovation in patient care, research, and education.
The Division of General Internal Medicine aims to fulfill its three-part academic mission of excellence in clinical care delivery, education, and research by providing: the highest quality of clinical service, distinguished teaching through innovative educational and learning program development, and scholarly clinical research.
By doing so, we support the University of Missouri School of Medicine and Department of Medicine mission goals for institutional enhancement to benefit the students, faculty, patients and citizens we serve.
Division faculty serve as office-based clinicians in the ambulatory practice at the Fairview and Woodrail Clinics, where they also supervise residents and medical students. Faculty participate in institutional initiatives related to educational program development, clinical development, and educational research that aim to improve health outcomes to strengthen the training of clinicians for the future. Collaborative research activities conducted with other established University research centers and departments in the Health system and affiliated hospitals address clinical effectiveness, quality of care, medical leadership development, and curriculum enhancement. Research interests include improving diagnostic and therapeutic decision making, improving the quality and safety of health care, medical informatics and interdisciplinary teamwork.
I welcome the opportunity to provide more information about the division's activities and share our vision and strategic plan for the future.
