The Department of Medicine has a long and distinguished history of outstanding basic and clinical research aimed at transforming the health of our patients. All of the department’s subspecialties are engaged in innovative research with an emphasis on interdisciplinary projects. The department is also committed to training the next generation of physician-scientists. To accomplish this goal, most divisions have NIH-supported training programs. The department has the most funding of any department or center at the University with more than 500 awards totaling over $110 million. In 2016, we ranked 17 in the US in NIH funding for departments of medicine.
