Family Medicine (PCMH)
As one of Fort Belvoir Community Hospital's Patient Centered Medical Homes, the Family Medicine Clinic aims to improve the health of our military members, retirees and their families by providing world-class, family- and community-oriented healthcare to our patients.
We also pride ourselves in furthering the education of medical students, physician assistants, residents, fellows, and faculty in the principles of family medicine. The department staff seeks to discover new knowledge that will contribute to the processes and outcomes of military healthcare.
