Department of Family Medicine & Rural Health
The Department of Family Medicine and Rural Health is actively engaged in all aspects of the mission of the College and, thus, chose to use the College mission as its own. The mission of the Department is to educate and develop exemplary physicians who practice patient-centered health care, discover and advance knowledge, and are responsive to community needs, especially through services to elder, rural, minority, and underserved populations. Department faculty are involved in all levels of administration, educational leadership, College service, teaching and advising across all four years of the curriculum. Faculty also provide clinical care to underserved populations of all types in the Tallahassee area and across the state.
