    Information about Research and Education in the Department of Family Medicine

    The Department of Family Medicine is internationally recognized for its community-based and primary care research programs, with our faculty involved in investigator-initiated and as collaborators in interdisciplinary research. Our research vision is to develop and sustain a nurturing and productive environment that fosters independent researchers as well as collaborative teams for addressing clinical and methodological issues in primary care community-based research.

    Our projects usually are conducted by one of three research teams. Community-based research is carried out by the Center for Primary Care Community Based Research headed by Dr. Jeannette E. South-Paul. Community immunization projects are carried out by the immunization research team (PittVax), headed by Dr. Richard K. Zimmerman. Each of the ongoing projects focuses on barriers to care and the health and healthcare disparities that result. The successful community-oriented projects result from an infrastructure that embraces the community interests, identifies and cooperates with community leaders, and targets conditions that plague the most underserved in our region.
