The Department of Internal Medicine has a long-standing tradition of excellence in patient care and education. The department's clinical activities focus on delivering high-quality and comprehensive care for the prevention of diseases, the management of chronic disorders, and the treatment of hospitalized patients. The department is extensively involved in continuous quality improvement efforts, and it provides up-to-date evidence-based care for diverse patient populations from Australia and the surrounding communities.
Medical care is delivered by resident physicians, registered nurses, clinical nutritionists, and a health educator. The medical care staff sees patients by appointment, although walk-in and same day appointments. After hours medical care and advice are coordinated through a 24-hour physician on-call service.
