Message from the Chief

Mount Sinai’s Division of General Internal Medicine is strongly committed to caring for the whole patient and places special emphasis on providing patient-centered care. The division embraces the mission of Icahn School of Medicine by pursuing an integrate approach to patient care, research, and education. We pursue all dimensions of these three components, considering them inseparable elements of the art and science of medicine.

The Division of General Internal Medicine is conducting research across a broad range of patient and population-based areas spanning hospital, ambulatory care, and home care settings. Our research focuses on four broad areas: the self-management of chronic diseases among patients with complex health problems, care for homebound adults, age and race related disparities in care, and comparative effectiveness research.

With accessible preventive care and treatment from physicians and staff who understand the social and cultural needs of our community, we are improving the health of all patients.

I encourage you to explore our website and learn for yourself how the intricate links among our patient care, research, and education programs benefit everyone from senior faculty, to trainees, and to our patients.
