How do Internal Medicine and Family Practice differ?
Family practice doctors receive three years of residency training which includes exposure to adult medicine, pediatrics, surgery, and obstetrics. Internal Medicine physicians also receive three years of residency training, all of which is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of adult health problems. Therefore, in teens through senior citizens, Internists are better-prepared to handle the full scope of medical needs, including routine and preventive care, minor illnesses/injuries, and management of complex chronic illnesses.
