Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine
The Department of Family Medicine prepares residents and students to provide excellent comprehensive family health care with an emphasis on underserved and minority communities. We believe in access to quality health care that stresses prevention and attention to the dignity, mental health, and spiritual health for all individuals and their families.
Our goal is to provide outstanding leadership in the provision of patient care, teaching, and research to improve the health status of family and their communities.
Our Approach to Health Care
The majority of the physicians within the department practice at the Morehouse Medical Associates (MMA) Comprehensive Family Healthcare Center located in East Point, Georgia. The center was established by Morehouse School of Medicine as part of its Family Practice Residency Program.
A unique distinction of the Comprehensive Family Healthcare Center is that its staff consists of professionals from the fields of psychology, nutrition, family support services, and health education. This enables the physicians and staff to use a highly effective team approach to deliver comprehensive patient care that helps to ensure total wellness for patients of all ages. Patient services at our center extend beyond those typically offered by other clinics. We provide:
- Home care or doctor visits to your home as needed
- Weight control and stress management counseling
- Women's wellness programs
- Individualized or group nutritional counseling
- Medicare and Medicaid eligibility assistance
