Research

Our faculty members are committed to furthering scholarship in family medicine. They wrote the book, or at least a book chapter, on everything from ambulatory care to health prevention to tropical medicine. We also regularly make presentations at national conferences.

Career Counseling

Our academic and clinical faculty members not only provide a high-quality education for medical students and residents, but they also act as role models to promote family medicine. We hold various activities to answer questions about family medicine, and we are always available to provide career counseling to interested students.
