Social Medicine and Advocacy Residency Training = SMART


Family Health Care is changing and growing!


Soon Family Health Care’s teams will include Family Medicine resident physicians and faculty from the University of Kansas Family Medicine Department. As we work through the changes, we want to make it easy for patients. Clinic team will be identified by a color. When calling to schedule FHC will track teams by color.






The ability to skillfully address patients’ medical and social needs is critical to improving health outcomes. The goals of establishing this specific track with a focus on the social determinants of health is to support family medicine physicians to excel as community health leaders through commitment to social justice and community service.


Residents in this training track learn how to screen for challenging social issues that impact health and healthcare access.Trainees work closely with experienced social services personnel to learn about resources in the community to help address these problems once they are identified.
