Family & Community Medicine

Library resources to help you in your course work, research, clerkships, residency, and curriculum support.


Our Department of Family and Community Medicine was established in 1978, and is one of the largest family medicine departments in the NY metro area.  Its purpose is to ensure that each NYMC student has been taught the generalist competencies they need to become great doctors; and to provide the community and preventive medicine education and training that students and residents need to improve health and function effectively in our complex healthcare system.

This guide is intended to support this curriculum and help you navigate library services, find a book, locate a journal or article, navigate a database, utilize evidence-based practice resources, and find quality sites on the Internet.
