State-of-the-Art Patient Care
The Department of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art patient care and improving treatment through clinical research and education. Department of Medicine physicians provide care to thousands of patients annually at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the Baltimore VA Medical Center and the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.
Since 1807, the Department of Medicine has trained physicians of the highest caliber, including more than half of the physicians currently practicing medicine in Maryland. With 340 full-time faculty members, the Department of Medicine is the largest department in the School of Medicine and is responsible for the training of 140 residents and 89 fellows. Stephen N. Davis, MBBS, is the Theodore E. Woodward Professor and Chair of the Department of Medicine.
Our current active research funding exceeds $180 million, over half of which comes from NIH and other federal agencies. With nearly 100 funded investigators, the department has an extensive research base in both the basic and clinical sciences. Our research training programs are extensive and include basic, clinical and translational research training awards. The Department of Medicine also supports and conducts research internationally, with considerable infrastructure in such geographically diverse areas as South America and Africa.
