Mission and Goals

The Division of Hospital Medicine is committed to the core missions of the Department of Medicine:

Patient Care

We are dedicated to compassionate relief of suffering as well as evidenced based, responsible diagnosis and management of pathology.


We do not confuse experience and expertise for mastery.  We are committed to continuous learning, education of one another, and all those that wish to learn from our knowledge.


We strive to systematically improve the quality of health care through increased access to care, efficient delivery of care, and evidence-based decision making.


We are committed to the analysis and understanding of the changing American Health Care Landscape while planning ahead and engaging in the challenges that lie ahead.
