Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine’s Research homepage. Our mission is to improve health, patient care, and medical education by engaging in and encouraging scholarship in Primary Care. I encourage you to explore this website which includes information on current and past research projects, listings of research faculty and staff as well as grants that fund their efforts, details of two practice-based research networks, a compilation of our efforts at dissemination of research through publication and a description of educational training opportunities for medical students. By working together on research and quality improvement, we can evaluate our current practice and identify factors that contribute to better outcomes for our patients.
