The Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has gained national and international prominence as a center for general internal medicine research and training.
We offer training programs that aim to train the next generation of leaders in primary care research from diverse backgrounds, preparing them with the most advanced methods and frameworks to study and improve primary care.
The Department of Medicine also offers a one-year ACGME-accredited clinical fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine. Fellows participate in a high-volume, interdisciplinary clinical program aimed to train future leaders in clinical care and education.
Fellows develop clinical expertise in symptom assessment and management as well as advanced communication skills with patients, families, and other health care providers. Fellows graduate highly capable of entering Palliative careers in the ambulatory, hospice, nursing home and/or hospital settings.
The division houses one of the nation’s premier internal-primary care residencies. The program capitalizes on the rigorous inpatient training at Penn, and complements it with expanded curricular and clinical training in primary care.
