Enhancing the health of individuals, families, populations and communities is the over-riding mission and priority of the Department of Family Medicine in the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University (GRU). The department provides primary care education, discovery and clinical services to advance this mission.
The department reflects and epitomizes GRU’s well-known commitment to patient- and family-centered care and practice-based population management concepts. Its curricula, research and clinical practices are continually monitored and revised as needed to ensure substantial relevance to the health care challenges faced in a rapidly changing environment. Objective feedback attests to the success of this approach, including the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s recognition of the Department’s faculty/resident practice as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home.
