New Beginnings:

The Department of Family Medicine was first formed in 1967 when the first teaching unit set up under the auspices of a medical school was created.  The Henderson teaching unit was created in 1967 and four physicians from the surrounding community, Drs. Ron McAuley, Bob McMillan, Cliff Reid and Allan McFarlane, were recruited to run this unit.  They brought their practices with them and residency training followed soon thereafter.
