The Department of Medicine’s 650-plus faculty physicians, advanced practice providers, fellows, and residents provide high quality, patient-centered care to more than 125,000 adults each year. Here, we blend expertise with compassion, and high-tech with high-touch care. We are especially proud of our collaborative team culture, one that promotes care and support for each other, that enables us to care for our patients with true empathy and respect.
Caring Across North Carolina
We care for patients across various inpatient hospitals, procedural units, outpatient clinics, skilled nursing facilities, the NC prison system, and now, using virtual care, increasingly in their own homes.
Medical Office Building
The new, 150,000-square foot UNC Eastowne Medical Office Building offers state-of-the-art resources, including 11 medical specialties, diagnostic testing, infusions, pharmacy, and clinical trials, with easy parking in one convenient location.
As academic clinicians, we perform research that moves patient care forward, including clinical trials that look at new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. Volunteers may participate for the opportunity to receive cutting-edge treatments for specific conditions, and to help others.

Care by Division
In addition to primary care (ranked #1 by US News and World Report for three years in a row) and secondary care across all internal medicine subspecialties, we have specialty programs in various areas. Please visit our divisions to learn about specific programs.
High Value Care
The Department of Medicine promotes high value care through the “Value-Care Action Group” (VCAG). VCAG champions in each Division review current practices looking for improvements for high-value outcomes in healthcare. High-value is defined by the quality of patient-centered care achieved per unit of cost. The “value” in value-based healthcare is derived from measuring health outcomes against the cost of delivering the outcomes.
To date, VCAG improvement efforts include an outpatient diuresis clinic, an eConsult service, a specialized inpatient diabetes management service, and a patient education initiative that improves care for cancer patients while reducing unnecessary visits to the ED.
