Within the Section of General Internal Medicine, there is an emphasis on evidence-based General Internal Medicine practice.  For residents, this emphasis includes weekly GIM conferences (Wednesdays 1 PM) and periodic workshops and seminars.

In addition to working with General Internal Medicine residents, faculty members are integral to the Medical School curriculum in all years of undergraduate experience.
