About Us

The Section of General Internal Medicine (GIM) encompasses a wide range of clinical, educational, and research activities focused on providing high-quality care, educating the next generation of clinicians and leaders, and generating knowledge to advance general internal medicine. We are at the forefront of innovations in primary care, addiction medicine, preventative medicine, palliative care, immigrant and refugee health, women’s health, and more.

Clinical Units

The GIM primary care practice is made up of faculty physicians, nurse practitioners, medical residents, and staff providing care to a diverse population of patients. All faculty physicians are board-certified in Internal Medicine and several have additional certifications and expertise in sub-specialty areas. GIM is home to multiple innovative programs that serve the unique needs of our community, including:

In addition, GIM’s Community Medicine Unit (CMU) supports the academics and practice of our community-based internists, providing new opportunities for faculty connections and education through monthly ambulatory M&M conferences and CMU Grand Rounds.


GIM has a large and growing research program. Our research activities include a wide range of innovative studies in addiction science, patient navigation, community engagement, sexual and gender minority health, chronic musculoskeletal diseases, and more.
