Family medicine provides a point of first contact, on-going and preventive care to all patients regardless of age, gender, culture, care setting, or type of problem. Clinical experiences in family medicine and other primary care specialties allow students to understand how context influences diagnosis and treatment. Through these experiences, students learn the evaluation and management of frequently occurring, complex, and often ill-defined problems across a variety of settings.
The Department of Family and Community Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine provides an outstanding educational environment for medical students and residents.
