Welcome from the Division Chief
Whether you are a current valued patient, or you are looking for a primary care practice, a great place to work or do your clinical education/training, or a great cause to donate to, I would like to welcome you to the General Medicine Division at URMC.
The Division has a rich history in academic general medicine dating to its inception in the early 1970s when its fellowship program was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. We have always strived to be a model of excellence in high quality clinical care and ambulatory medical education, as well as a laboratory for scholarship in these areas.
I hope that our website is helpful to you. In the event that you have unanswered questions after browsing it, I urge you to contact us.
