Family physicians are asked to do it all and do it well. Our mission is to provide students with a strong foundation in clinical medicine to prepare them well to care for their future patients using the guiding principles of osteopathic medicine in a way that values the whole person and the important intersection between body, mind, and spirit. We strive to meet our mission while making certain that the students maintain their own health as they navigate through their medical education journey.
