Division of Geriatric, Hospital, Palliative and General Internal Medicine

GHPGIM-team

About the Division

Our division is comprised of 4 sections – Geriatrics, Hospital Medicine, Palliative Care and General Internal Medicine. The division is comprised of an outstanding group of more than 50 compassionate and dedicated physician educators. Created in late 1988 with only a handful of faculty having eclectic interests and commitments, the division has grown to its present size and stature and honed its focus on the broad academic mission of the Keck School of Medicine.

The newly comprised division is a skillful team of clinician educators as well as a cadre of nationally recognized scientists. The division has already experienced considerable growth and realized the synergy of the union. The areas of private practice, training and research continue to be focal points of the division’s faculty.
