Disease-oriented research

The Department of Medicine’s research focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic and acute human disease. We have a robust portfolio of clinical and patient outcome research centered around respiratory disease, cancer, liver disease and diabetes.  Our researchers are also making new discoveries in autoimmune and rheumatology and kidney disease.

Patient-oriented research

Our clinical providers and social scientists continue to expand and improve the way we deliver healthcare to our patients. Our researchers have externally funded projects in patient outcomes research, implementation science, health service delivery systems, health communication shared decision making, and health disparities. Through collaborations with the Department of Community Health, local, and national health departments, the Krasnoff Quality Management Institute, and the system's evidence-based clinical practice and clinical integration, we are pushing the envelope in how healthcare is delivered. The Division of Internal Medicine is a strong partner to the Department of Emergency Medicine and Psychiatry in expanding substance use and behavioral health research.

Technology and informatics

The Department of Medicine is active in the development of innovative medical devices and use of health mobile applications and telemedicine to improve the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, and treatment of disease.

Cleveland Clinic

Northwell Health, in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic, is leading the way in transforming basic and clinical research findings into new methods that are being used in practice. Each year, new clinical tools, medications, and therapies are making the transition from laboratory to bedside, helping to change the widespread perception that this key step is a slow process.
