Abstract

Family practice was formally recognized as a specialty in 1968. The definition of a family physician included an understanding of the whole person, the family, and their relationships, and of the environmental milieu, with a special emphasis on prevention. Family practice arose from general practice, but with a different emphasis, expanded goals, and extended training requirements.
