Division of Geriatric, Hospital, Palliative and General Internal Medicine
About the Division
The GHPGIM division is one of the Department of Medicine’s leaders in terms of private practice revenue and number of patient visits. Healthcare Center 2 has continued to serve as the hub of the division’s ambulatory private practice, in which division faculty see an average of 140 patient visits per day. The division’s hospital medicine program at Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center has achieved the department’s goal of providing all of the teaching and supervision on the general medicine service by general medicine faculty.
The hospital medicine program at the Keck Medical Center of USC continues to expand, both in numbers and influence. The palliative care section has also expanded in terms of patient volume, impact, teaching and education.
