Established in July of 1997, the Department of Family Medicine at Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine was the first such university-based department in the city of Boston.

Family practice is the medical specialty concerned with comprehensive health care for the individual and the entire family. It is the specialty of breadth that integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences. The scope of family practice is not limited by the patient's age or sex, condition or disease.
Family practice doctors at BMC take care of managing all your health care needs, whether you are well or ill.
