  2. Provide our patients and community with exceptional, whole-person care promoting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing and well-being, with compassion and reverence for all.
  3. Educate, counsel and guide residents as the Family Physician leaders, faculty, and community providers of tomorrow, acknowledging the privilege and responsibility to promote unrivaled patient care, fiscal responsibility, professional integrity, personal accountability, and a humble commitment to lifelong learning and selfless service.
  4. Promote resident physician personal and professional growth opportunities through experience with underserved populations, both in the US and internationally, engaging in needed healthcare services for these communities through patient and medical education, prevention strategies, public health, and acute clinical/hospital care participation, thereby gaining knowledge and understanding of the unique socio-cultural factors that impede or promote access and utilization of local or regional health facilities.
