Welcome to the Department of Family & Geriatric Medicine
Dr. Diane M. Harper, MPH, MS
Welcome to a unique department reflecting our dual mission of achieving excellence in education, research and practice in family medicine while simultaneously achieving excellence in geriatric education, research and service. The two entities are synergistic with family medicine providing cradle to grave care and geriatrics responding to the particular needs of older adults.
Our department is not only an academic setting for our medical students, residents and fellows, but a clinical setting serving patients in the area through all stages of life. If you are interested in our Family Medicine Interst Group, Residency or Fellowship programs, please follow the links to their perspective pages. If you are interested in becoming a patient at one of our clinics, please check out the About Us tab atop our home page.
