The Division of General Internal Medicine (DGIM) at Massachusetts General Hospital encompasses more than 400 general medicine physicians with world-renowned programs in teaching and training, research, clinical practice, hospital medicine, consultative medicine, global health, innovation and scholarship.

The DGIM is an integrated, coordinated group that works across clinical areas to develop innovative new programs addressing health care needs in clinics, hospitals, patients’ homes and the community. The Practice-Based Research and Quality Improvement Network (PBRQIN), a patient-centered research program dedicated to designing innovative ways to deliver preventive care and disease management, is one example of a DGIM research project that has affected systems throughout Mass General.

Our residency and fellowship programs develop sustainable career paths in academic primary care as well as community-based health centers and have become a model for academic engagement. Learn more about our educational opportunities.
