Canyon Vista Medical Center Family Medicine Residency & Clinic

About Our Program
The scope of Family Medicine and information about training in this program
 Family Medicine is a specialty that undergoes continuous development. Practitioners must undergo training in both broad hospital training and continuity of care on an outpatient basis for people of all age groups, meaning family practitioners continue to adapt their skills to fit the needs of their community. 

The scope of Family Medicine is broad in nature. Family Practitioners must train to be prepared for long term continuity of care, surgical care, obstetric care, and hospital care.  This will be especially important for practitioners who live  in rural areas and may be one of the primary services in the region. Other practitioners may choose to have an integrated practice on a multi-specialty team, and thus it will be important to have the training to be an asset to this team.
Family physicians  train to deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services. A Family Medicine specialist will need to provide routine care, preventative care, immunizations, health screening, and counseling.
