The Department of Medicine is comprised of 10 clinical divisions: the Division of Psychosocial Medicine which is the home for this fellowship, as well as divisions of Allergy & Clinical Immunology, Cardiology, Critical Care and Hospital Medicine, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, Mycobacterial and Respiratory Infections, Oncology, Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine, Rheumatology, and Sleep Medicine.  Last year, approximately 25,000 outpatient visits were logged by clinicians in the Department of Medicine.  Clinicians in the Division of Psychosocial Medicine render consultative, integrated, and liaison services within the Department, with over 6,000 patient care encounters last year.  Fellows clinical experiences will be both broad-based across the different illness groups we treat, as well as tailored to the specific interests of a given fellow.  National Jewish sees a diverse population of patients and is a major provider for low-income and underinsured persons within our community.
