What is Family Medicine?
Family medicine, by definition, is comprehensive, continuing medical care provided to a family unit by a physician. To be certified as a specialist in family medicine, a doctor must be trained in the following areas of medicine: pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, and community and preventive medicine. In order to be certified by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), a physician must complete a three-year family practice residency training program after completion of medical school. He or She must also pass a written examination administered by the American Board of Family Medicine and must be re-certified every 7 years.
