To the editor: The Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago has long been organized into subspecialty sections (10, at present) each having separate outpatient units, and 8 of the 10 having separate inpatient units as well. In 1970, while retaining and further strengthening the subspecialty groups, we developed a 66-bed General Medical Service. In the following year a large (14 000 visits yearly) General Medical Out-Patient Unit was formed. Then, more recently, we developed a General Internal Medicine Section, with six faculty members specifically committed to it, and soon we will have a General Internal Medicine Fellowship Program.
