Family and Community Medicine

Celebrating Over 40 Years of Care

The foundation for individual, family and community health. 

The Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM) at the Medical College of Wisconsin teaches a comprehensive, whole-person approach to care. In an age where specialists abound, DFCM incorporates the broader behavioral sciences into the practice of medicine and values a patient-physician relationship within the totality of family and community. With our progressive partnerships and strong, community-based residency programs, DFCM pioneers student learning opportunities that deepen the understanding of the social, economic and cultural aspects of patient care.
