Message from the Interim Department Chair

Welcome! The UArizona Department of Family and Community Medicine is one of the top-ranking family medicine programs in the country. We are known for providing outstanding clinical education to medical students, residents and fellows, conducting ground-breaking research and developing innovative community engagement programs designed to improve the health of individuals, families and communities.

What's more, we believe in fostering a culture of inclusive excellence. All identities and differences including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, educational backgrounds and geographic region are embraced and valued. A culture of inclusive excellence creates role models, broadens perspectives, combats negative stereotyping and optimizes our ability to provide exceptional healthcare for all.
