About this book


Drawing on the expertise of a nationally recognized group of family practice educators affiliated with the University of California, Drs. Little and Midtling are able to present many specific examples on meeting the challenges of becoming a family physician. Also included are chapters that draw out the differences between inpatient and outpatient service, discuss the teaching of practice management, and touch on the impact of specialists in ethics and cross cultural communication on family practice teams. The concluding chapters examine how family physicians have survived in the "medical community", and examine the future of family practice.
