The specialty of family medicine is centered on lasting, caring relationships with patients and their families.
The scope of family medicine encompasses all ages, sexes, each organ system and every disease entity.Family physicians integrate the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences to provide continuing and comprehensive health care. Family medicine is a discipline only recognised by this name in the USA, Canada and India. In other parts of the world and especially in Europe, it is known as general practice.
In small communities the family medicine practitioner can be a vital tool in maintaining the health of that community. He or she will get to know their patients very well and will also know the family histories. This can be an essential diagnostic tool, as often the family holds the key to working out what the matter is; in time, the family practitioner will most likely have known a large percentage of the population since birth. The idea of a local doctor who knows everyone can be something of a cliché to some people, but it really does have a beneficial effect. People are more likely to approach someone they know well and who they know is also trusted by their friends and family.
