Department of Family Medicine

About the Department

The Department of Family medicine prioritizes preparing and educating medical students, fellows, physician assistants and community physicians to be premiere primary care practitioners, researchers and leaders of the future. We provide comprehensive training in the broad field of primary care, with numerous opportunities for hands-on clinical work at our training hospitals, as well as in community clinics that serve diverse patient populations. Our faculty is passionate not only about their research, but also about sharing their knowledge with new generations of primary care specialists.

Family medicine is one of the most popular specialty programs at USC, and our physician assistant training program is rated among the best in the country.

The Department doesn’t operate a residency at this time. Planning efforts are underway for a new program in the future.
