Collaborating & Building Programs to Revolutionize Health & Care

The Department of Internal Medicine is working actively with its academic and community partners to achieve Dell Medical School’s mission and improve the health of patients and the local community.

Mission Points

The Department of Internal Medicine trains the next generation of physicians through an internal medicine and a dermatology residency program in partnership with the Ascension Seton, the Central Texas Veterans Healthcare System and CommUnityCare. The Internal Medicine Residency Program also offers a Distinction Program for Care Transformation, a Primary Care Track and hosts the transitional training programs.

The department collaborates with its community partners to improve access to patient-centered, high-quality, evidence-based care in general internal medicine and the medicine subspecialties.

The Department of Internal Medicine team seeks to develop ways in which traditional medicine can complement efforts in health promotion, prevention and treatment of chronic illness.

The department is committed to creating new knowledge that improves the health of patients and of the Central Texas community.
