The Department of Family Medicine (DFM) is charged with the dual responsibility of training tomorrow’s family physicians and transforming our current family practices into the Patient Centered Medical Homes they need to be for 21st century primary care medicine. Both these tasks are undergoing continuous change and innovation. The DFM carries out practice-based research to improve all our efforts. In addition, the department has several programs that serve the underrepresented minority populations and underserved of the San Diego area. These missions require inspiration, creativity, hard work and – like all things in life worth doing – some resource support. Among the varied streams of resources we depend on are gifts and grants from grateful patients and supporters. If you are so inclined to support our efforts to train and develop your personal physicians for tomorrow, please consider
giving to our DFM missions of clinical care, education, research and community service.
