Additionally, students are exposed to social problems of the disadvantaged and students, residents and faculty of the department are encouraged to participate in research and scholarly activity to study, publish and present findings in both clinical and behavioral science areas; to interact with the specialist colleagues; to extend the boundaries of the medical school education to rural sites; and to teach in specialty areas of family medicine to include sports and emergency care.
