What is Family Medicine

Family medicine is a medical specialty that requires completion of a 3-year residency following medical school. Family physicians may then choose to complete additional fellowships and certifications in concentrations like sports medicine, women’s health, emergency medicine, and more.

Unlike other specialists, family physicians are trained to care for the whole person. They are qualified to provide comprehensive primary and preventive care and treat most ailments for people of all ages—from beginning to end of life. Thus, family medicine is the foundation of healthcare in the United States.
