Our mission is to prepare family physicians to serve as leaders in urban health
Family practice is based upon a biopsychosocial approach that integrates the psychological, social, economic, and environmental influences on a person's health with biomedical causes. Our residency program builds on the comprehensiveness of family practice with an emphasis on the particular needs of medically underserved communities.
The population we serve is diverse and requires specific skills and understanding. A sensitivity to specific cultural nuances is crucial to providing optimal care for our patients.Our residency program also offers preparation to those of our residents who plan to assume leadership positions within healthcare or to work in academic medicine.
