Research and Scholarship

At the Department of Family Medicine, our research focuses on understanding and transforming health care through innovation. To accomplish this, the research section nurtures collaboration and uses quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods in advanced ways to conduct research that informs and is informed by primary care practice.

Our research section is comprised of 15 research faculty and over 30 staff. In FY21, we had over $13 million in federal (NIH, AHRQ, CDC, etc.) and foundation (American Cancer Society, etc.) research funding.
