Our Mission


Our mission is to prepare family physicians to provide quality care for urban underserved communities.

To accomplish this, we strive to:

  • Offer residents a high-quality, comprehensive primary care education that emphasizes the social, economic, and cultural dimensions of health and illness;
  • Promote collaborative, family-centered health care which supports and relies on our patients’ autonomy, strengths, and values; and
  • Attract residents, faculty, and staff of diverse cultural backgrounds and life experiences and inspire them to work toward broader social change.
