Mission: To provide Family Physicians and other primary care providers in South Texas and beyond with up-to date information about evidence-based and patient-centered care they can use to prevent disease and improve the care they deliver to their individual patients, families and communities.

We emphasis the assessment of outcomes, such as performance improvement in practice and point of care learning, which incorporates documented application of new knowledge into practice.
