Within the Department of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the Division of General Internal Medicine is the largest of 11 divisions and is the most diverse in terms of activities related to patient care, teaching, research, and administration. The University has made a long-term commitment to developing the division's strength and excellence in the practice of primary care at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), in the teaching of primary care and general internal medicine, and in the pursuit of research in nontraditional areas, such as health care outcomes, quality, and cost-effectiveness. In return, the division has contributed greatly to the medical school's mission of providing high-quality education, patient care, and research within a highly successful tertiary care center.
