Faculty Development

The Division of General Internal Medicine holds a monthly faculty development seminar to stay apprised of updates in general internal medicine and to develop skills as educators.  Meetings include journal club discussions, presentations on common clinical issues, and workshops to improve observation, feedback, and remediation of learners.


Our faculty are active participants and leaders in both undergraduate and graduate medical education, providing clinic-based training, mentoring, and offering advanced electives with opportunities for clinical rotations in General Medicine clinics.

"The mission of the Division of General Internal Medicine is to provide excellent, compassionate patient-centered care and to train the next generation of internists." Dr. Ambili Ramachandran, MD, MS, FACP Division Chief, Co-medical Director, General Medicine Clinic
