About the Forum

First held in 1980, The Forum for Behavioral Science in Family Medicine has served to stimulate the advancement of behavioral science in family medicine for 38 consecutive years.

The Department of Family Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin has sponsored The Forum since 1999, and The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine has recognized and endorsed the conference since 1981.
