Research & Scholarly Activity

Faculty Research Interests

The DFMRH is the largest clinical department and the core faculty consists of 10 full-time physician faculty, two ARNP faculty members and 6 administrative support personnel. In addition to these core faculty, there are 14 other full-time family physician faculty members involved with central administration (Dean, Sr. Associate Dean for Medical Education and Academic Affairs, Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and two Regional Campus Deans) and two non-MD faculty in the Office of Medical Education (Assoc. Dean of Faculty Development and Director of Medical Informatics).

The rest of our faculty are located throughout the state and are supported and directed by the central campus. Our community physicians are committed to teaching our students and are provided resources, support, and direction to reach that goal.

Each faculty has different areas of research interest. The following includes research topics and faculty profiles that will describe research interests in detail.
