ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Family and Community Medicine (DF&CM) is involved with the training opportunities for students to learn about the discipline of family medicine. We hope to instill in them a sense of being active, life-long learners with particular emphasis directed at caring for the patient in the context of their community, family and society. As a predominately rural state, we greatly depend on our community-based physicians for providing an environment which encourages the student to explore the vast array of what it means to be a family practitioner. We continue to strive to develop family physicians who will be knowledgeable, sensitive, caring, who will regard each patient as an important individual and who will provide the best medical care possible to the citizens of this state.
On behalf of the Department of Family and Community Medicine, we wish to extend our gratitude for your involvement in teaching our students. Please explore this developing section of our website as it is meant to be a resource for you and another way in which you can be connected to us. We welcome your comments and feedback.
