Abstract
Curriculum in family medicine and primary care includes various areas of concern for educators in the behavioral sciences. Most of this concerns the physician-patient relationship as the focus for teaching and learning. This paper outlines the work of a longitudinal, case oriented group of family physicians as it reflects the correlation between the actualities of practice and the curriculum in behavioral science for family practice residents. Also discussed is the issue of potential "typologies" as elaborated in the family physicians' reasons for case presentations. Such groups assist faculty and practitioners in their own awareness of educational and patient care issues in the physician-patient relationship as well as serve as a foundation for building a relevant behavioral science curriculum for residents and students.
