The Department of Family Medicine is committed to producing high-quality scholarship that improves patient care, medical education, and health policy. Benefiting from the renowned academic environment of the University of Chicago, our Family Medicine researchers apply rigorous qualitative and quantitative methods to practice problems.
Our physicians embrace the principles of family medicine by dedicating their individual talents to touch patients across Chicago. Our faculty members are committed to caring for a variety of patients in various settings. Many focus on caring for underserved patients of all ages on the South Side of Chicago. Others choose to focus their energy in primarily teaching clinics. Some provide outpatient care only, others see patients in the hospital and deliver babies.
