WE KNOW WHAT YOU NEED - WE KNOW WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS
Department of Medicine was established in 1956 along with the departments of Pharmacology, Pathology, Bacteriology and Surgery.
Years ago, all internists were generalists who provided comprehensive medical care to the patients and some had some areas of interest. To reinforce the high-quality training of the general internist, the Department of Medicine had been established and led by Professor Saw Mya Aung. In late 20th century, although there has been the rapid growth of physician sub specialization, the Department still provides the maintenance of the tradition of general internist to identify as a specialty, to establish a home for the academic general internist and to promote excellence in practice, teaching and research relevant to general internal medicine.
