Family and Preventive Medicine


Interim Department Chair

John Barrett, MD

At the Department of Family & Preventive Medicine, we address current and emerging health care needs by educating health care professionals, conducting basic and applied research, and implementing state-of-the-art clinical and community-based health services. The Department houses the Divisions of Family Medicine, Physician Assistant Studies, Public Health, and Occupational and Environmental Health.

We strive to provide a science-based framework by which individuals and communities can access the best health outcomes, and to train skillful, competent clinicians who serve their communities with compassion, knowledge, and experience in the best of contemporary healthcare practice.
