To provide a safe and powerful educational environment for family medicine residents that supports and encourages graduates to serve as model family physicians providing excellent care to under-served populations in all settings and advancing scholarship in family medicine.

Guiding Principles

  • Success in medical education is fostered by communication, collaboration, and cooperation
  • Family medicine residents will best learn family medicine from family medicine faculty in the venues where family medicine physicians typically practice
  • We will focus on the care of the medically under-served people of Dallas and on training competent, caring providers of that care
  • Information is critical to learners in family medicine. Therefore they must master various information resources and tools, and their educational environment must provide them with rich information about their progress and performance
