The IU Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics was one of the first three such divisions in the country, established in 1970 by Joe Mamlin. It is now one of the largest in the country with nearly 300 faculty with diverse involvement in the tripartite academic mission of service, teaching, and research.
Because the Division is larger than the average Department of Medicine in the country, it is formally divided into eight Sections, each led by an Associate Chief, that include the hospitals in which our members practice (Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, Roudebush VA Medical Center, and IU Hospital/IU Health Partners), our outpatient practice (Eskenazi Health), our academic missions (Education and Research), our specialty practice (Geriatrics), and the Center for Global Health. Each Section manages its own budget, space, faculty and staff, and programs. Overall management of the Division occurs within an Executive Committee that consists of the Associate Chiefs of each section and the Division's administrative staff: Christine Miller (Division Administrator), Laura Bergdoll, CRA (Division Research Administrator), Aaron Coleman (HR Business Partner), Heather Hennen (Assistant Business Manager) and Carol Stimac (Administrative Assistant).
The Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics is large, diverse, and active in the Department of Medicine's clinical, teaching and research missions. Its members have been active in national organizations (e.g, three former presidents of the Society of General Internal Medicine and members of the Institute of Medicine), and have key leadership roles in the Indiana University School of Medicine and the University at large.
Our new administrative offices are located at the new Fifth Third Faculty Office Building.
