Medicine Why Choose Us

Comprehensive Services in Primary Care and Medical Subspecialties

The Department of Medicine team is your best asset to help you get and stay healthy. Our general internal medicine physicians are here to manage your day-to-day primary health care. And when you need more specialized health services, dozens of experts deliver superior care in nine medical subspecialties. From preventive care to management of simple conditions or complex illnesses, our medical staff can help you live a fuller, healthier life.

Our team of more than 100 physicians provide advanced diagnostics and treatment for a broad range of disorders, with an emphasis on disease prevention and wellness. Primary care physicians often coordinate overall care and, when needed, consult with specialists to pinpoint a diagnosis and ensure good outcomes for patients.

The medical team includes physicians who have received additional training in one of nine subspecialty areas of internal medicine. They have completed a fellowship in their specialty area, which usually requires one to three years of study beyond a general internal medicine residency.

Our Department of Medicine physicians provide both consultation for hospitalized patients, as well as outpatient care in offices and clinics at MedStar Washington Hospital Center—and other convenient locations throughout the region.

The Department’s physicians are actively involved in fellowship training programs, and serve as principal investigators for clinical research trials that offer patients access to new therapies.
