The Department of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences at Wayne State University is dedicated to leading in research and advancing family medicine and public health sciences. This commitment is exemplified in all aspects of our work, from the scholarly efforts that we require of our residents to the many research studies in various disciplines conducted by our faculty. We are involved in nationally funded research in many areas, including behavioral science, medical education, occupational/environmental health, practice-based research, community-based research, and epidemiology. The DFMPHS is the academic home of the metropolitan Detroit-based practice-based research network, MetroNet.
