The Department of Medicine has major responsibilities for providing students with clinical knowledge and experience throughout all levels of the curriculum in areas including basic science correlations, clinical skills, physical and laboratory diagnosis, and problem solving. Department faculty are deeply involved in curricular delivery and development centrally as well as in our clinical communities throughout the state. The department also partners with graduate programs in medical education in a number of affiliated hospitals, making significant contributions to training medical residents and subspecialty fellows, and to continuing education for practicing physicians in the communities.
Faculty members are actively involved in research and collaborate actively with faculty in other departments and affiliated institutions in communities. These programs are based in university facilities including laboratories in the Life Science Building and the Clinical Center. Clinical research is also conducted at the MSU Breslin Cancer Center. The Department of Medicine is dedicated to advancing the practice of medicine while embracing diversity, challenge and opportunity.
