    The Family Medicine curriculum at Penn State College of Medicine provides an opportunity for further development and maturation as a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. The physician in training (PT) has the good fortune to work directly with patients and families from adolescence through late ages and specialties: adolescent medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, general pediatrics, geriatrics, family medicine, and primary care training (PC).


     There are thousands of doctors and physicians, but only a select few of them specialize in Family Medicine. If you've ever wondered the difference between family medicine and other specialties, or what it really looks like to be a Family Practitioner, you'll want to stick around.



    The practice of family medicine is devoted to the health care of individuals and families. Need to check this cardiologist and get more things about family medicine. That's an exciting responsibility, because when it comes to caring for one person, even two people, you are unable to anticipate their needs.
