The Department of Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center sponsors investigation by hundreds of scientists — work that has been transformative both of the scientific basis of medicine and its practice.

There are 24 Divisions in the Department of Medicine, 11 involving clinical and research activities, 13 that are research-based, but all of which include teaching, supervision and mentorship.

The Department is recognized nationally for the excellence of its faculty and the magnitude and breadth of its research productivity. In fiscal year 2011, the Department had externally funded research of more than $182 million, placing it among the 10 best funded Medical School Departments of Medicine in the country — though we are a single hospital, not a medical school.
