UNMC - College of Medicine - Internal Medicine - General Internal Medicine

Support the Division of General Internal Medicine

Support the Division of General Internal Medicine

The Division of General Internal Medicine includes more than 40 physicians and researchers who teach approximately 500 medical students, conduct research, and practice medicine at nine locations in the Omaha metropolitan area. These sites include the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Olson Center for Women's Health and the new Village Pointe Medical Center.

Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the division is their distinctive approach to education. Developed by LeeRoy E. Meyer, M.D., the methodology includes small group, case-based sessions that offer students an extra dose of discussion and inquiry, and simulated diagnosis.

Research studies in the division range from clinical informatics to the treatment of urinary tract infections. Residents and students have the option to work with the division's primary researchers.
