General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics

As a specialty division of IU School of Medicine’s Department of Medicine, General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics is large, diverse, and active in the department’s clinical, teaching and research missions. The Division includes primary care, geriatrics, hospital medicine, palliative medicine and global medicine and ethics. Our clinicians practice at three Indianapolis health systems (IU Health, Eskenazi Health and the VA) and at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya. Our researchers benefit from appointments at the Regenstrief Institute and other IU Centers. Led by Greg Sachs, MD, the division was one of the first three of such specialty units in the United States.
