Who We Are
University Medicine (UM) is the largest non-profit, academic, multi-specialty medical group in Rhode Island with approximately 190 physicians. We provide primary care and specialty outpatient services in multiple practices throughout Rhode Island. UM physicians also lead many inpatient medical services at both Rhode Island and The Miriam Hospitals, enabling comprehensive and coordinated care for our patients. Our specialties include:
UM’s ability to integrate the three missions of patient care, teaching and research into “a greater good” is what gives UM meaning and purpose and sets it apart from all other internal medicine practices in the state of Rhode Island. It is by embracing all three missions that we provide a unique service to our patients, our colleagues and to the worldwide community.
The goals of our organization are embedded in the tripartite mission of patient care, research and teaching.
- We provide compassionate, accessible, evidence-based, state-of-the-art quality medical care to our patients.
- We excel in research that leads to the improvement of healthcare locally, nationally and internationally.
- We use our clinical expertise and scientific knowledge to teach the clinicians, educators and investigators of tomorrow.
- We promote citizenship through provision of care to disadvantaged populations, volunteering in local agencies and leadership in professional organizations.
- We promote the individual growth, health and professional accomplishments of all of our employees.
- We maintain integral partnerships with members of our community (other academic groups, our hospitals, our medical school, individual practitioners and the community at large.)
Patients are our Priority
Our mission is to provide high-level patient care, advance medical knowledge thru scientific research and develop cures. Our culture promotes constant learning, which transfers across all staff members and to the physicians we train. To reinforce this, University Medicine (UM) allocates 10% of its revenue into the academic pursuits of our physicians (who have faculty appointments with Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University).
We contribute time, energy and funds to non-profit healthcare endeavors locally and globally. We provide over $1 million dollars of free care to people in the State of Rhode Island. Our international reach provides financial and medical resources to the underserved throughout the world.
This caring transfers to our employees, their work experience and quality of life.
Most of the full-time faculty physicians in the Department of Medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University are members of UM, including the Directors of the Division of General Internal Medicine and of the various Medical Subspecialty Divisions at Brown as well as at several area hospitals.
