Family Practice Duties
A family practice doctor is mainly responsible for the care of patients of all ages, helping to administer general medicine as well as assess and diagnose specialized cases and treatments. Family practice doctors are also known as general practitioners, and general duties include a wide range of non-specialist work. On a daily basis, family practice doctors will be asked to examine and treat patients with a wide variety of conditions, from the common cold to diabetes or heart disease. General practitioners will be required to administer vaccinations, record patient medical history, educate patients and their families about disease prevention, promote health and hygiene maintenance, prepare medical records, prescribe medications, perform follow-up examinations, and supervise other health professionals. Many general practitioners treat entire families, from children to senior-aged individuals, and must possess a wide knowledge of medical conditions and treatments.
Family Practice Education Requirements
Family practice doctors are required to have a bachelor’s degree in a related field, as well as a medical degree from a four-year medical school or accredited medical program. Then, the prospective family practice doctor must complete a family medicine internship and a residency, which typically takes two to four years to complete. After completion, the general practitioner must receive board certification as well as a state medical license for practicing medicine. Other requirements may be needed as well, such as the DEA registration to prescribe controlled substances as well as a CME credit to maintain a license after residency.
