Abstract : The study developed the optimal model for establishing a family practice program at Fort Hood, Texas. The objectives determined the area demographics, clinical workload and combined with staff interviews compiled those requirements of a family practice program to support a beneficiary population of 102,000 soldiers, dependent families and retirees. The study concluded that a modified family practice program would assist in the delivery of quality health care with the optimal model as a community-based concept. Recommendations supported the family practice program establishment and the study further recommended a phased scheduling for implementation.
