MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

Welcome to the Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago. Our department was the first department created when the medical school began over 80 years ago. It has evolved into the largest department not only in the medical school with over 345 full time faculty and research faculty but is the largest department in the University. The main missions of the Department of Medicine, scholarship, discovery, education and outstanding patient care, occur in a setting of multicultural and ethnic diversity. These missions are supported by exceptional faculty and trainees in the department. We believe you will quickly agree that the DOM’s faculty, fellows and trainees very much represent the forefront of academic medicine –extraordinary people doing things to support the missions of our department. The result is a Department which reaches far beyond the walls of our medical school to improve humanity and health throughout our community and the world providing high quality patient care – and training of the next generation of leaders in medicine.
