DGIM at Mt Zion/Parnassus is home to a spectacular group of faculty, fellows, residents, students and staff, committed to outstanding patient care, research and education.

DGIM was established in 1980 by Dr. Steve Schroeder and has grown to include about 80 faculty members, 3 fellows, 72 internal medicine residents (including 30 primary care residents) an ambulatory chief resident, 62 campus and 78 practice staff. Our general medicine practice serves a diverse population of about 25,000 patients and is certified as a level 3 NCQA Patient Centered Medical Home. We are proud of the quality care we deliver to all patients with complex chronic illness and the high marks we receive in patient satisfaction scores.

DGIM researchers conduct a broad spectrum of disease and population-based research that spans the continuum from human genetics to population health. As one of the leading primary care residency programs in the nation, the UCSF Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency trains residents to care for complex patients in the ambulatory and hospital settings. We are also committed to medical student education through all four years of the curriculum.

The culture of DGIM is based on humanism, integrity in science and patient care, commitment to social justice, value added in diversity, and collective responsibilities and rewards.
