Disease Prevention & Health Promotion
University of Utah Health's General Internal Medicine offers a comprehensive program of disease prevention and health promotion. Our internal medicine physicians provide a full range of care for adolescents and adults, including periodic health examinations with appropriate screening for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and common, treatable malignancies.
We focus on identifying risk factors and health management along with interventions, such as lipid-lowering diets, smoking cessation programs, and exercise regimens. We also offer adult immunizations.
Our doctors create one-on-one relationships with their patients to develop individualized care plans and, if necessary, have access to the broad range of specialty care providers of the University of Utah Health system.
Inpatient Treatment—Hospitalist Care
The hospitalist group within the General Medicine provides comprehensive in-hospital care for patients admitted to the internal medicine service at University of Utah Hospital. This group specializes in all aspects of inpatient internal medicine and are continuously available to patients and their families during hospitalization. The group also provides consultation throughout the hospital on issues of perioperative management, anticoagulation care, and diabetes management.
