Welcome to Corvallis Family MedicineFamily Practice became a recognized specialty in 1971. This was actually not a new field of medicine, but rather a return of the pendulum. A century ago virtually all physicians were in general practice, but around the end of World War II there was a proliferation of medical knowledge and an emergence of new specialists who devoted their training and practice to narrower areas of medicine. With this growth of specialists the numbers of general practitioners declined.
The impetus for developing better generalists came from two sources. Firstly, the public became more vocal about the shortage of physicians who would care for the whole person and family. Secondly, in the 1960s several widely publicized studies by the government all arrived at similar conclusions: increasing specialization had led to increasing costs as well as fragmentation and imbalances in the delivery of health care. Recommendations were called for a new kind of specialist in family medicine, educated to provide better quality care to a broader population.
The American Academy of Family Physicians was formed in 1971. Its charter defines Family Practice as “comprehensive medical care with particular emphasis on the family unit in which the physician’s continuing responsibility for health care is limited neither by the patient’s age or sex, nor by a particular organ system or disease.”
