ABOUT UMN FAMILY MEDICINE RESEARCHResearch is an integral component of our mission. We are committed to evaluating important practice innovations in family medicine and primary care.
Unlike other clinical science departments, we do not maintain a specific disease-related research focus. Instead, we embrace translational research that explores health care delivery in a primary care setting, the roles and activities of primary care providers, and the engagement of community members in advancing clinical science and addressing health disparities in the communities we serve.
Research foci include:
- Behavioral and mental health
- Chronic diseases
- Health disparities
- Human sexuality
- Medical education
- Practice-based research
- Sports medicine
- Women's health
