UND says it's tops in family medicine


GRAND FORKS - A larger proportion of medical students at UND enter family medicine than at any other medical school in the nation, the university said Tuesday.

Over three years ending in the fall of 2007, more than 20 percent of graduates went into family medicine, a field that Executive Dean Joshua Wynne said is struggling to attract new doctors.

"We've been able to buck the trend," he said. "If anything, it's been going in the other direction."
