School of Medicine > Family Medicine & Community Health

Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine & Community Health

Patient Care. Our world class team of physicians provides exceptional care to your entire family, from prenatal care to newborns to senior citizens. We are committed to helping you stay healthy and improving your quality of life.

Education. As one of the top producers of Family Medicine physicians in the country, we help fill an important need in the community. Our medical students and residents train in state-of-the-art facilities with talented faculty who are dedicated to shaping tomorrow's physicians. Graduates enter the medical arena armed with the knowledge and tools necessary for success.

Research. Our research division explores the delivery and utilization of health care in the region and beyond. Our research laboratory is the world and we study people in their authentic environment with the goal of making everyone healthier.

Statement on Racism and Violence:

The faculty, residents, and staff of the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health stand united against racism and violence against any people because of their ethnic background, national origin, or beliefs.

The increase in harassment, hate, and violence directed toward Asians, blacks, LatinX, women, and members of the LGBTQ community is alarming. Not only are such actions abhorrent, but they also detract from the very serious work required to dismantle systemic racism in our country.

We ask everyone to carefully examine their own implicit biases, to stand up against racism, and to join us in our mission to eliminate racism from health care in a first step to a brighter future for our country.

May is the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so let us take this opportunity to reinforce our stand against xenophobia directed toward Asians and Asian Americans.
