The Academic Program

The family medicine and community health (FMCH) department is a cooperative effort whose faculty members are involved with community partnerships in health professions education. Teaching goals are based on the assumption that primary medical care includes not only high quality, accessible, and acceptable care for episodes of illness, but also a concern for the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and environment for the population served.

Medical student instruction focuses on basic conceptual tools and practical preceptorships with people providing primary care.
