Why Choose Family Medicine?

Family medicine physicians provide comprehensive, continuous healthcare to all members of the family throughout the course of their lives. By building relationships based on communication and respect, these physicians gain a deeper understanding of the whole person, including the range of physical, emotional and socioeconomic factors that influence a person’s health status.

The Department of Family & Community Medicine integrates biological, clinical and behavioral sciences to train our physicians to provide outstanding levels of patient-centered and culturally appropriate care.

    Welcome to the Department of Mental Health

    Each of us has health and well-being. To flourish we must take our mental health into account. As the World Health Organization (WHO) says, “there is no health without mental health.”

    According to the World Health Organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Mental health is an integral part of this definition.”

    The encouraging news is we can strengthen our mental health and well-being. We can lower our stress levels and increase our ability to deal with challenges. This also improves our physical health.

    We know, for example, that how we care for our children as they grow impacts their later health and well-being. We also know that connection with others who may be going through a difficult time can make a big difference.  It’s important to know that

    “Ronald K. Baker PhD, MD was a resident in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Arizona in the late 70s when I was a junior faculty member. We did many cases together, and I remember him well, and fondly, as an excellent resident and physician, always on top of things. He had an engaging personality, scraggly mustache, and a wry (sometimes smirky) smile and sense of humor. Like me, he was a bit quirky, with esoteric interests (I wasn’t surprised to learn he cared for distressed ferrets). He had excellent hands for procedures, but roughly hewn, as if he worked on cars or other labor-intensive hobbies in his spare time. 

    He had been a chemist and I queried him about van der Waals forces, the subtle quantum interactions by which anesthetic gases erase consciousness, still mysterious to this day. Favoring true ‘chemical’ bonds, Ron disdained the weak and

    “Let us preserve health through knowledge and education.”

    The Department of Medicine at Georgetown University is steeped in a rich tradition of excellence built upon the legacies of leaders in cardiology, hematology and oncology, and gastroenterology. We are proud of this tradition of excellence, and it is our goal today to further that reputation by remaining on the cutting edge of new developments in medical education, scientific and clinical investigation, and clinical care. Central to our success is our commitment to scholarship at all levels of medical training.



    The Department of Medicine’s strategic plan focuses our resources and developmental efforts on three missions: teaching, clinical service and biomedical research. As with most successful academic departments of medicine, the strength of the department arises from its outstanding faculty of physicians and scientists.

    The Department of Medicine at Georgetown University is organized into 11 academic divisions.
