Mission Statement

We are an Academic Department of Family Medicine that holds as its "mission" the high quality delivery, dissemination, continual evaluation and creation of the principles of Family Medicine.

It is not a question of whether it will or not; it is a question of when. When will the backlash of depersonalization of medical care place those concerned with wellness, prevention and compassionate, contextual treatment of illness in the driver's seat? And, it is a question of who will lead the academic and clinical market. I believe our department, our school, has positioned itself to be the leader.
