Family medicine is the medical specialty which provides continuing, comprehensive health care for the individual and family. The scope of family medicine encompasses all ages, both sexes, each organ system and every disease entity. Family Practice is a medical specialty with three years of residency training beyond medical school. Family physicians learn the breadth and depth of medicine necessary to provide for the entire family’s medical care from newborns to the golden years.
