The Division of Internal Medicine provides the foundation upon which many of the other patient care services at Westchester Medical Center rely. The division has expanded from four general internists to the current staff of 30 full-time physicians, and continues to grow.  The hospitalist group is an integral part of the care delivery of medicine as well as the teching of house staff and medical students.

Members of the division are very active in clinical research and coordinate many research projects. Areas of research interest include technological solutions to patient care, quality improvement and patient safety, epidemiology, decision analysis, healthcare research, screening for and early detection of disease, ethics and innovative methods of clinical teaching.

The division operates a group practice providing outpatient services in new offices located at 19 Bradhurst Ave., Hawthorne, where physicians are able to provide patient services just a few minutes from Westchester Medical Center.

Internal Medicine:

Internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Specialists in internal medicine are commonly called internists. In modern practice, most internists are subspecialists: that is, they generally limit their medical practice to problems of one organ system or to one particular area of medical knowledge.

Internists have a lengthy clinical and scientific training in their areas of medical interest and have special expertise in the use of prescription drugs or other medical therapies.
