At the heart of our research endeavors lies a deep understanding of the vital role that family medicine plays within the broader healthcare system. Family physicians serve as primary care providers, delivering comprehensive and continuous medical care to individuals of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. The nature of family medicine necessitates a unique set of knowledge and abilities that encompass not only clinical expertise but also effective communication, patient-centered care, and an understanding of the social determinants of health. Our research group recognizes the importance of evidence-based practices and continuous innovation in family medicine education.
