Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine

The Harbor-UCLA Department of Family Medicine is committed to serving our patients and training the next generation of family physicians to become leaders in health care quality, education, advocacy, and innovation. Our program is dedicated to urban underserved populations. We are united in the pursuit of health equity, diversity and community health and empowerment. Here, trainees are immersed in leading-edge clinical and social medicine opportunities throughout a developmental, interprofessional, community-engaged curriculum. Recognizing the importance of resilience and wellness among care providers, our program promotes personal- and community-support activities as an antidote to burnout and compassion-fatigue. We provide a foundation of excellence in academic and service opportunities to prepare our residents to become lifelong learners and to make a positive impact on patients, communities and the health system throughout their careers.
