Established in 1920, our department has been home to just six department chairs in our history. Many notable alumni have also been a part of our team, including nearly 10 who have gone on to chair leading institutions across the nation - including Massachusetts General Hospital and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Today, we support 80 full-time faculty, including 14 endowed professorships. Annually we experience more than 1,500 inpatient admissions, 4,500 inpatient consults and 50,000 outpatient visits.
We regularly receive some of the highest rankings across the nation in clinical care, education, and research. In 2020, we ranked ninth in National Institute of Health Funding to United States Medical Schools by the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research, and 15th in the nation for care by U.S. News and World Report.
