Family medicine physicians, also called family
practice physicians, are medical doctors who specialize in the total health care of
the individual and the family. After four years of medical school, they complete an
additional three-year residency program.
Family medicine physicians can diagnose
and treat a variety of health conditions and diseases for males and females of all
ages. They may further specialize in another area of medicine, such as the care of
older adults (geriatric medicine) or people who have sports injuries (sports medicine).
medicine physicians can be board-certified by the Board of Family Practice, which
is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
