Family Physicians

A family physician is a doctor who takes care of the whole family. They also create caring relationships with patients and their families and really get know their patients. They listen to them and help them make the right health care decisions.

I would like to take care of the physical, mental and emotional health of both  my patients and their patients' families. Physicians know your family's health history and how it can affect them. They are trained to care for all patients through all the stages of their life.Family doctors are trained in all areas of medicine. They can diagnose and treat the full range of problems people usually bring to their doctors. They know when to treat you, and, if necessary, when to bring in another specialist you can trust. I love helping others and making them better, therefore I would defiantly enjoy this career for my futue.

Primary Source

Teresa thinks that the most challenging part of being a family physician is keeping up with the medical advances. New diseases, treatments, technologies, and drugs come up constantly, and physicians must always update their knowledge as much as possible in the interests of their patients.

According to her. . .

Are there many opportunities in your field? What should people do to get started?

There are opportunities out there for people interested in family medicine. The best things for you to do if you’d like to become a physician are to do well in school, but also participate in lots of extracurricular activities. Medical schools are looking for well-rounded people, not just good science students.

Tell me about your job. Is what you do different in any way from what others in your occupation do?

Like other family physicians, I practice preventative medicine, which involves keeping people well-informed and advocating a healthy lifestyle. I also treat acute or chronic illnesses.Unlike some other physicians, I work in a community clinic with a few other doctors and also at a college health center. I deal with patients of all ages. Occasionally I also work weekends.
