Our Department

The Department of Medicine is comprised of some of the nation’s leading authorities on illness, disease, and treatment. Our department consists of twelve individual divisions, spanning the breadth of subspecialties in Internal Medicine. The goals of our department's faculty are to provide thorough, broad-based education to our residents; cutting-edge, individualized care to patients through Feinberg-affiliated hospitals and care sites; and to carry out high-level basic and clinical research.

From Our Faculty

While others in research work to find new and better ways to prevent, treat, or cure disease, my aim is to help to make sure that the best treatments make it out of the research world into everyday practice and to all segments of the population.Muriel Jean-Jacques, MD
