The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, one of the founding departments of the medical school, is a dynamic, diverse, and broad-based academic and clinical department. Our mission statement both reflects and guides the work of our faculty and staff.
The words that attracted many members of our faculty to family medicine - continuity, coordination, commitment, caring, comprehensiveness, and community - still define our work, and in today's world are more important than ever.
Meet our faculty and learn about our programs and accomplishments in medical student education, residency and fellowship training, faculty development, public health, community health, research and clinical care. We welcome your interest and invite your questions.
Our mission is to provide leadership to achieve the highest standards of patient care, education, and research in family medicine and community health, and we are committed to improving the impact of this work on the health of populations with special emphasis on those most vulnerable.
