Welcome to Family Medicine

Family Medicine is the medical discipline concerned with the continuing and comprehensive care of individuals and their families.

It's the medical specialty that devotes itself to caring about patients (and not just their diseases).

Mission and goals:

Our missions are: to teach medical students the tenets of Family Medicine and to ensure that they acquire the competencies appropriate to their level of training; to prepare interested students to pursue careers in family medicine and primary care; to create a supportive atmosphere to meet the needs of the medical student body; to pursue and promote scholarly work among our trainees and faculty members; to train bilingual students to become physicians that will practice in Puerto Rico, and in the Continental United States; and, to foster collaboration with other departments.
