Chair's Message

Interim Chair: Dr. Sritha Rajupet, MD, MPH

Welcome to the Department of Family, Population & Preventive Medicine website with links to our clinical, educational and research activities. I am eager for our patients, students, and academic colleagues to utilize the site as a resource to learn about us. I look forward to using the site to share information about faculty accomplishments and staff contributions to our current and future programs. For our colleagues, my hope is the site will serve as a spark for future collaborations. The website also provides historical highlights for the Departments of Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine from inception to the time of their merger into the current department.  Interim Chair
Recognition of numerous synergies between the former Departments of Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine played a significant role in the official launch of the Department of Family, Population and Preventive Medicine on August 1, 2015. With the growing focus on prevention, population health, and transformation of the delivery of primary care our department is well poised to build on the concepts espoused in the Institute of Medicine’s 2012 report Primary Care and Public Health: Exploring Integration to Improve Population Health.



The Department is organized into the following eight divisions. Click on the links to view descriptions of each division’s focus, activities and programs.
