Community Health and Family Medicine

Department of Community Health and Family Medicine

The primary mission of the Department of Community Health and Family Medicine in the University of Florida College of Medicine is to develop an outstanding academic environment for education, research, and clinical practice in family medicine. Essential components of this mission are to:

  • educate medical students in family medicine
  • train family medicine residents
  • foster research and discovery in primary care
  • deliver quality clinical services to all segments of the community
  • provide continuing education to the community of family physicians

The Department integrates teaching in humanistic medicine, medical ethics, behavioral medicine, and rural and community health into both undergraduate and graduate curricula. The Department has model family care sites in several communities, providing training in urban and rural medicine and health care for under served areas in the State. These teaching and clinical activities are augmented by a variety of research projects that explore and contribute to the scientific knowledge base in family and community medicine, rural health, primary care, behavioral medicine, and the medical humanities.
