The Department of Family Medicine is a dynamic department with a progressive mission. It is committed to providing excellent, comprehensive, and continuous primary care, as well as outstanding medical education and community-based health research. Central to the Department’s pursuit of its mission and values is the devotion to outreach within the community.
“The poor health statistics in the South Bronx drive us to truly want to make a difference in each and every patient, family, and neighborhood with which we connect.”
Ongoing collaboration with community-based organizations and services allow for the development of new initiatives and expansion of existing programs, as well as improved delivery of health services and research opportunities. The Family Medicine Community Health Worker (CHW) program and the Claremont Healthy Village Initiative exemplify the department’s community and home-based health care efforts.
