"Our mission is to provide superb clinical care, educate with excellence and pursue research with passion"
The Department of Internal Medicine is the largest and most complex department in the Morsani College of Medicine with over 24 Divisions, Programs, Centers and Institutes. We manage a $130,000,000 annual budget of which over $78,000,000 are NIH funded research projects and $14,000,000 in clinical research studies.
The Department provides education and training for a diverse group of medical students, residents, fellows and health personnel from USF and throughout the world. Highlights of our successes in teaching, research and patient-care are briefly described below. Usually in medicine if you understand something you can put a number on it, so we use metrics when possible.
