Family Medicine

The objectives of the Department of Family Medicine are to:

  1. Provide medical students and residents with education and training that exemplifies excellence, compassion, and wholeness in the specialty of family medicine.
  2. Educate students and residents to provide evidence-based, best-practice, chronic disease care that spans the arc of care—from prevention to management to palliative care.
  3. Teach students to evaluate and manage common problems at the primary care level, providing continuing and comprehensive health care for individuals of both genders and all ages.
  4. Teach students and residents the skills necessary to take a spiritual history and incorporate the spiritual and psychosocial into the biomedical aspects of clinical care.
  5. Introduce students and residents to the use of a systems approach and quality improvement techniques to improve patient safety and assure the delivery of best-practice, evidence-based care to a population of patients.
  6. Introduce students to family physician role models so that students will be able to make informed choices regarding family medicine as a career option.
