The teaching, research and patient care programs of the University of Florida, Department of Medicine are conducted primarily in the inpatient and outpatient facilities of Shands Hospital, the principal teaching hospital of the University of Florida College of Medicine, and the Malcom Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC).

The intimate physical proximity of the VAMC to Shands Hospital and the University of Florida College of Medicine has facilitated the complete integration of educational, research and patient care programs for medical students, house staff, fellows and faculty of the department. The Department of Medicine includes its ten academic divisions, the Program in Computer Sciences and the University of Florida's Training Program for Physician Assistants.

The dedication and success of the faculty of the department in their teaching, research and patient care activities have permitted the development of an outstanding house staff training program in internal medicine.
