Internal Medicine

  • Welcome!

    The Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa is part of the Department of Internal Medicine and has quickly become the largest division within the Department of Medicine, with nearly 80 faculty members. Under the direction of Richard Hoffman, MD, MPH, the Division of General Medicine strives to achieve a tri-part mission of patient care, research, and education.

    A diverse faculty population allows the Division to achieve success in each area of their mission. The Division strives to provide convenient, life-long care to adult patients of all ages in their Resident-Based Teaching Clinic at Iowa River Landing as well as on-site at UIHC in the Medicine Specialty Clinic. High-quality, cost-effective care is provided to hospitalized patients at both UIHC and the Iowa City VA. A Surgical Co-Management Consult Service expands cross-departmental relationships, caring for pre- and post-op surgical patients with medical comorbidities. Outreach and Geriatric care is provided to aging patients while Palliative Care Services provide comfort care to patients with a wide range of illnesses.

    The Division contains a wealth of researchers, many who have secured external funding. Division researchers conduct rigorous research and analysis to improve patient care. In conjunction with the Iowa City VA, the Division also serves as a center for data acquisition, storage, and analysis in support of outcomes research.

    Several faculty members within the Division hold key roles in education, ranging from Associate Directors within the Internal Medicine Residency Training Program, to several key positions teaching medical students within the Carver College of Medicine. In addition, the division places a high value on teaching medical students, residents, and fellows, which is completed in various channels.
