The Department of Medicine has a long-standing tradition of excellence in compassionate patient care, innovative research and distinguished education, founded on the twin principles of caring and investigation.
Internists are a strange mix of both detective and engineer. We are drawn into internal medicine because we are at heart not just problem solvers, but fixers as well. That is, we want to identify the solution, and apply that solution ourselves to the problem. Internal Medicine therefore encompasses both the diagnostic work of a medical detective, and the interventional work of an engineer, as we try to rebuild our patients’ health. We want not only to find the piece of the puzzle that fits, we want to put it into place ourselves, and the satisfaction when a piece pops into its place is immense. The reward for fitting that puzzle piece into place is seeing someone get out of the hospital who would not have gotten out if not for us.
This challenging and diverse skill-set is crucial to the success of all internists, yet what drives these skills is just as important. Our department is motivated by the twin principles of caring and investigation. These principles not only define who we are as a group, they also drive what we do. We strive to care for not only our patients, but each other as well. Read More...
