What is Family Medicine? The specialty of Family Medicine grew out of the old specialty of General Practice. In contrast to general practitioners, who only undergo one year of training in addition to medical school, Family Medicine physicians receive three years of specialty training after medical school. This includes training in all the major fields of medicine including internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, gynecology, ENT, urology, cardiology, orthopedics and geriatrics. In 2005, the decision was made to change from the title “Family Practice” to “Family Medicine” to stress the value of the training Family Medicine doctors obtain by this additional training.
