Division of General Internal Medicine

From the Chief


Julia H. Arnsten, M.D.
Chief, Division of General Internal Medicine

The Einstein-Montefiore Division of General Internal Medicine (DGIM) was established in July 2004, with me as its first Chief. Our original mission was to build general internal medicine clinical research activity and funding, and to provide an academic administrative home for clinician educators, academic hospitalists, and patient-oriented researchers throughout the college.

Today, with over 75 full-time faculty members and staff, educational endeavors including a Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine residency training program, and diverse research activity supported by regular grand rounds and monthly “Works in Progress” meetings, our Division boasts an award-winning mentorship network and a research budget doubled by extramural grants.

General Internal Medicine faculty and staff include:

  • clinician-investigators
  • health psychologist
  • full-time PhD statistician
  • full-time data manager
  • clinician educators

Research areas include:

  • substance abuse treatment
  • hepatitis C
  • HIV prevention and adherence
  • nicotine dependence
  • chronic pain
  • women's health
  • medical education

General Internal Medicine currently has multiple sources of funding for research training, an endowed fund that supports a Fellowship in Health Services and Outcomes Research, and the NIH-funded Clinical Addiction Research and Education (CARE) Fellowship.

Our Division is housed in a newly renovated 3,000-square foot space with 17 offices for core research faculty, fellows, statistician and data manager, research assistants, and secretaries.

We continually strive to communicate effectively with those seeking information about our Division. Let us know if you have a question not yet answered by this website.
