The Internal Medicine Division of Medicine/Psychiatry provides opportunities to work in both inpatient Internal Medicine and Inpatient Psychiatry services. We also have prime responsibility for the inpatient Consult Liaison Psychiatry service and outpatient service in the Med/Psych Clinic. A team of highly trained and skilled nurses and nurse techs with experience in both medical and psychiatric issues provide support to the division. The Division offers a 5-year Medicine/Psychiatry residency program with 2 slots per year. Currently there are 9 residents in various stages of training. The residents are excited, motivated physicians who go on to challenging fellowships, administrative roles and faculty positions at leading universities.

In the Spring of 2015, John Flack, MD, MPH joined Southern Illinois University SOM as the new Chair of Medicine. The new Chair of Psychiatry, Kari Wolf, MD, joined Southern Illinois University SOM in the Summer of 2016.
