Department Link Family Medicine Department Website What is Family Medicine? We take care of people before they're even born, and if you live to be a hundred you won't outgrow us. Our range of practice is nearly limitless. We deliver babies and give flu shots and diagnose major diseases and sew up minor cuts. We have the heart and soul of that great American icon of the past, the family doctor who went to see you in a horse-drawn buggy. But today's family medicine means cutting-edge research and training tomorrow's doctors in the knowledge that's growing exponentially every year. We care for the body and the mind—the whole person—and we have a special feeling for the underserved. We didn't go into family medicine to get rich. We did it to help people get well. We're passionate about what we do, and our patients feel it. We are family medicine. Medicine on a mission.
