All of our physicians are board-certified and have a true passion for teaching; this kind of passion makes a tangible difference in the lives of students and is one of the many facets that comprise the overall Meharry experience.
To this end, our Chairman’s Rounds provide a truly unique opportunity for students to research a case and present their findings. Working together with Department Chair Duane T. Smoot, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.G., A.G.A.F., in a more intimate setting, qualified students hone research skills, build relationships, and receive individualized mentoring that encourages, challenges, and supports.
Each week, our Grand Rounds cover a host of topics and cases that are relevant to Meharry’s mission and, in many cases, effect communities on a global scale.
The Department of Internal Medicine includes the following divisions:
- General Internal Medicine
- Hematology & Oncology
- Infectious Diseases
- Pulmonary & Critical Care
- Student & Employee Health
- Allergy & Immunology
