Internal Medicine Mission
The Department of Internal Medicine strives to improve the quality of health care through excellence in the education of students, physicians, and the public, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through discovery, integration, and translation to the clinical setting, and the provision of comprehensive, compassionate, and accessible patient care.
Our goal is to develop physicians who approach medicine with compassion, professionalism, and intellectual discipline.
The research programs of the Department of Internal Medicine are fueled by the desire to improve our understanding of human health and disease and to develop innovative means to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases.
The Department's clinical services span the continuum of primary care to subspecialty care and even intensive care medicine monitored from remote sites.
The University of Texas at Houston Memorial Hermann Center for Healthcare Quality and Safety was created in November 2007 with ongoing extramural grants and support from the UT Health Science Center at Houston and the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System. The Center continues to grow recruiting new faculty (who may be appointed in any Health Science Center School) and by adding members from outside UT who maintain substantial and ongoing research collaborations with us.
