From our beginnings to current mission, CHFM has sought “To develop an outstanding academic environment for education, research, and clinical practice in family medicine.” As such, we provide the highest quality of care to the diverse population we serve and educate learners of all types and levels. We actively study, critically review, and research our efforts in these activities to insure we are providing the highest quality medical education in an environment of the highest quality patient care.
At present, our 55 faculty members provide patient care to over 157,796 outpatient visits and approximately 9,000 inpatient visits, teach medical students in all areas of the Medical School Curriculum, and train 29 Family Medicine residents as well as Sports Medicine fellows. Our faculty and residents are involved in expanding the scholarly foundation for Family Medicine through active participation in research and quality improvement activities.
Our Family Medicine centers located throughout Gainesville and the surrounding area offer a full ra...nge of primary care services.
