UNC Family Medicine will promote of the discovery and dissemination of knowledge important to clinical practice, teaching and improvements in the organization of health care. We aspire for our research to answer questions that matter in individual and population primary health care.

Important principles include a commitment to:
• both research (discovering new knowledge) and other forms of scholarship (integrating work from disparate fields, translating work to new audiences, innovating in education)
• research and scholarship that are important to people and populations and to their primary care needs
• research and scholarship that address clinical, teaching, the organization of health care services and policy issues.
