Department of Medicine

At the Department of Medicine, we are actively transforming academic medicine: how we teach it, how we develop new insights about it, and how we practice it, as we prevent what we can, heal what we cannot prevent, care for the well-being of our patients, and train the next generation of physicians.

Like any other academic department of medicine, we also have a tripartite mission (research, education, clinical care) and we are actively pushing the boundaries of knowledge in each of these realms. Serving one of the most diverse populations in the world and partnering with some of the finest research institutions, we are making contributions every day that change the way medicine is delivered, both tomorrow and years from now.

Our faculty is divided among 13 divisions:

  1. Allergy/Immunology (joint appointments with Pediatrics)
  2. Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism
  3. Gastroenterology
  4. General Internal Medicine
  5. Geriatric and Palliative Medicine
  6. Hematology/Medical Oncology
  7. Hepatology
  8. Hospital Medicine
  9. Infectious Disease
  10. Medical Ethics
  11. Nephrology
  12. Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine
  13. Rheumatology

There are roughly 750 members of the faculty of the Department of Medicine, in addition to one-thousand voluntary members, divided among the eighteen Northwell Health hospitals and more than 100 ambulatory sites.

In addition to collaborative research with the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, our researchers are breaking new ground by looking at–and changing–how care is delivered, how new ideas reach front-line clinicians, and how new doctors design their future. We are engaged in groundbreaking work in health services research, covering areas including telehealth, decision support analysis, usability testing, health outcomes research, health economics research, implementation science, behavioral science, evidence-based medicine, and health IT. Additionally, we are engaged collaboratively with the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in cancer research.

Our goals are to prepare qualified faculty for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the nation and to promote the development and advancement of faculty pursuing independent research careers through a tailored and supportive program.
