Our Mission 

The primary mission of the Department of Community Health and Family Medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine is to serve our patients and community, positively shaping the future of healthcare through outstanding teaching, discovery, and innovation in family medicine.

Essential components of this mission are to:

  • Educate medical students in family medicine
  • Train family medicine residents
  • Foster research and discovery in primary care
  • Deliver quality clinical services
  • Provide continuing education to family medicine physicians

Our Vision 

The vision at CHFM is to be a nationally recognized model department of family medicine. CHFM integrates teaching in humanistic medicine, medical ethics, behavioral medicine, and rural and community health into both undergraduate and graduate curricula.

The department has model practice sites in several communities, providing training in urban and rural medicine and health care for underserved areas in the state. These teaching and clinical activities are augmented by a variety of research projects that explore and contribute to the scientific knowledge base in family and community medicine, rural health, primary care, behavioral medicine, and the medical humanities.

We would also like to extend an invitation to visit with our chairman, Peter J. Carek, M.D., M.S .
