The Internal Medicine Division is responsible for treatment for a wide range of internal disorders. The Division includes five inpatient departments (Internal Medicine Departments A-E) and a number of related departments: Nephrology, Cardiology and Hematology, as well as the Departments of Dermatology, Neurology and Oncology. In addition, the Division encompasses a set of Units and Institutes, including Rheumatology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Pulmonology, Infectious Diseases, Clinical Pharmacology and Clinical Immunology.
The Internal Medicine Division is the busiest in the hospital, providing inpatient medical care and ambulatory care through its outpatient clinics and units to thousands of patients each year.
The Division was founded to integrate, streamline and synchronize the different aspects related to treating internal medicine patients; in the future, an intensive care unit dedicated to the Division, including respiratory treatment, is planned to be built.
In addition to their regular patient treatment duties, the Division physicians teach medical students from the Technion and overseas, and conduct clinical and laboratory research. Their work is frequently presented at professional conferences in Israel and overseas, where it is highly regarded.
