From The Chair
Charles P. Mouton, MD, MS
Charles P. Mouton, MD, MS The Howard University Family Medicine Residency Training Program began in 1970. This program was conceived based upon patient need, with the understanding that our patients required
coordination of medical services from acute care through tertiary care medical encounters.
The Program began with 2 residents and has expanded to a program of 18 residents. We have also developed an undergraduate program, which is a required clerkship in the College of Medicine, and the program has been functioning since 1973. Read more

Although the body of knowledge that constitutes the discipline of Family Medicine is derived from other disciplines such as Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Surgery, and Psychiatry, emphasis is placed on the efficient integration and coordination of necessary health services. The Family Medicine physician establishes a cohesive approach to health care combining behavioral sciences with traditional biological and clinical sciences. The core of knowledge within this discipline prepares the Family Physician for the patient's first contact with the health care system and throughout ongoing care.
