Dr. Berliant walks with Internal Medicine residentsThe education of tomorrow’s doctors is a critical part of our mission. Through teaching at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry and through internal medicine residencies at Strong Internal Medicine, we share the knowledge that we have been privileged to obtain from our own teachers, peers, and patients.

Members of the General Medicine Division have been recognized with the Baumann Prize for Excellence in Teaching, the highest teaching award in the Department of Medicine, as well as the Kohn Senior Teaching Fellow Award.
