Family Medicine

What is Family Medicine?

Family Medicine is the medical specialty which provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and the family. At the center of this process is the patient-physician relationship with the patient viewed in the context of the family. It is the extent to which this relationship is valued, developed, nurtured and maintained that distinguishes family practice from all other specialties. The family physician is the physician of first contact in most situations and, as the initial provider, is in a unique position to form a bond with the patient. The family physician evaluates the patient's total health needs, and provides personal care within one or more fields of medicine. The family physician's care is comprehensive and not limited by age, sex, organ system or type of problem, be it biological, behavioral, or social. The family physician refers the patient when indicated to other sources of care while preserving continuity of care.
