Community Impact

Family medicine is more than caring for patients within clinic walls; it's caring for patients within the context of their communities.

We are actively engaged in caring for underserved communities at home and abroad.

Community health goals

  • Educate physicians to identify health care needs, remove barriers to care, and promote the health of the communities they serve
  • Model excellent health care in clinical and community settings
  • Promote primary care research that translates into clinical and community practice
  • Recognize communities of special needs and foster mechanisms to provide them with care
