Career Pathway of Family Medicine

The specialty of family medicine was created in 1969 to fulfill the generalist function in medicine, which suffered with the growth of subspecialization after World War II.” Since the specialty’s creation, family medicine has provided personal, front-line general medical care to patients of all ages, genders, income levels, education, and occupations across the United States. This speciality plays an important role in providing direct and continuous care of a person and their family. These physicians take care of all types of conditions and believe they all need attention. Family medicine physicians are trained to address the most pressing and most common medical needs of patients without being limited by age or gender. They also practice a range of medical subjects and specialties, rather than the depth of a specific medical field. The focus of a family physician is the patient as a whole.
