General Medicine


The Division of General Medicine is proud to be a robust educational partner with the John Sealy School of Medicine and the School of Nursing. We are the primary clinical teaching service for the School of Medicine clerkships for general inpatient and outpatient medicine. In addition to bedside teaching, many of our faculty are involved with the School of Medicine’s Problem Based Learning and Practice of Medicine curriculum and serve as instructors and mentors for medical students. Dr. Bernard Karnath and Dr. Norman Farr are heavily involved with undergraduate medical education and keep us engaged with the medical students. Our nurse practitioners serve as mentors for advance practice nurses in training from the School of Nursing.

We also serve as the primary teaching service for the Internal Medicine Residency program. Our Chief Residents have dual appointments as Chief Residents and as Faculty members of the Division. Dr. Sonstein is the Internal Medicine Residency Program Director. In addition, Drs. Farr, Park, and Qureshi serve as Assistant Program Directors for the residency program. In addition, our faculty are frequently asked to participate in peer education, from local to international conferences. We are committed to providing an enjoyable and engaging educational program for all learners.
