About Us

The Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Innovation serves as the academic home to general internists on the faculty of NYU School of Medicine under the leadership of Sondra Zabar, MD.

The Division's core mission is to Optimize Care to patient populations through Integrated Clinical Care and Use of Information and Innovation in patient care and Education and Research.

It includes over 700 physicians across five institutions and affiliated practices. Together the Division is working in partnership with the Departments of Medicine and Population Health, Faculty Group Practice, and​ others towards improving clinical outcomes, patient care, education and physician training in today's healthcare environment.

General internists in private practice in and around NYU Langone Medical Center (including our Faculty Group Practice, NYU Internal Medicine Associates) are also members of the Division faculty.

Division faculty primarily provide care at several clinical facilities:

  • Bellevue Hospital Center
  • Tisch Hospital
  • VA Medical Center New York
  • Gouverneur Health
  • NYU Lutheran Medical Center

The Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Innovation faculty are engaged in a wide-ranging program of extramurally funded research in core issues affecting the health of urban populations, including substance abuse, behavior change, chronic disease prevention and management, and evidence-based strategies for training future physicians to address these issues effectively themselves.
