ChristianaCare

For Health Professionals

Medicine

The Department of Medicine has an attending staff of approximately 470 physicians and oversees more than 400 of ChristianaCare’s 1,100 plus licensed beds. Our medical staff serves a diverse patient mix providing exceptional care as we diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of primary-care diseases, as well as tertiary care medical conditions, not routinely encountered in smaller hospital settings. The ongoing opportunity to teach medical students is also important. Our qualified and experienced general internists and subspecialists take a friendly and enthusiastic approach to teaching and mentoring. This helps to ensure superior clinical medicine.
