UIC Department of Family Medicine’s Research Mission is to use research and scholarship as tools for cultivating knowledge, attitudes, and skills for continuous, life-long learning.

  • By developing and testing innovative instruction and assessment methods, we continuously strive to explore better ways of teaching students, residents and faculty to be competent, compassionate and humane family physicians and educators.
  • By studying clinical medicine and health systems issues, as well as the larger impact of social and economic variables on health and healthcare, we aim to provide high quality, evidence-based, patient-centered, culturally appropriate care to the diverse patient populations we serve.
  • By sharing and disseminating what we know and what we learn, we attempt to facilitate cohesiveness and team building.
