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 37 consecutive years. At the core of The Forum’s success are three objectives: promote professional networking, provide high quality professional development opportunities, and advance the integration of behavioral science in family medicine training.

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.
