What is Family Medicine (Family Practice)?

Family Medicine is a medical specialty devoted to comprehensive health care to people of all ages. It is a primary care medical specialty along with obstetrics-gynecology and pediatrics. Family Medicine physicians frequently treat the entire family from the children to the parents and grandparents.

 

Who Do Family Medicine Physicians Treat?

 

Family physicians are board certified to treat patients of all ages from infants to elderly patients. Family physicians are also trained to treat female medical issues including prenatal care, gynecology-obstetrics, and family planning (birth control).

 

What is the difference between Family Medicine and General Practice?

 

Physicians who are board certified in Family Medicine complete a rigorous 3 year residency following the completion of their medical school training. General practice physician complete a 1 year internship following medical school.  Even though both Family Medicine physicians and General Practice physicians may treat patients for similar problems, Family Medicine physicians are required to pass a board certification which must be renewed.  Board certifications are only renewed through completing medical education conferences, reading up-to-date medical journals, and testing.
