Welcome to Family Medicine. The Family Medicine Department at the USF Health Morsani School of Medicine has three important missions:  patient care, education, and research. 

Our faculty provide clinical care to patients of all ages. We as physicians are passionate about the health of our patients, and work closely with them to achieve wellness. Medical students are actively involved in our clinical care effort, and help provide extra care and attention to the needs of our patients.

The department is dedicated to educating medical students in the principals of compassionate, competent care for patients. Faculty members participate in our medical students’ education at all stages of development, ensuring a strong foundation and building upon that as they grow and learn.

A vigorous research effort has allowed the USF Department of Family Medicine to be ranked in the top 20% of Family Medicine Departments nationally based on funding from the National Institutes of Health.

We hope you will learn more about us as you make your way through our website. We thank you for your interest in the Department of Family Medicine at the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine.
