Welcome to the Family & Community Medicine website. Family medicine is a broad medical specialty providing on-going, comprehensive health care for the individual and the family. We are incorporating the principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home into our entire curriculum including clerkship teaching modules on essential primary-care communication skills, chronic disease management model of care, and continuous clinical quality improvement. We anticipate that these will be part of the essential knowledge base of medical students as our health care system evolves from its current encounter-based focus to a population management, outcomes-driven healthcare system. The Department is reinvigorating its scholarly mission through efforts to create a clinic-based research network for our region with the goal of participating in national research initiatives of interest to primary care physicians and patients. The scope of Family Medicine encompasses all ages, both genders, each organ system and every disease entity. Family physicians are fully prepared to serve in clinics, hospitals and urgent care settings, including emergency departments, and in urban, suburban and rural communities.
