The Center for the History of Family Medicine (CHFM) is the primary repository of information and resources on the history and evolution of general practice, family practice and the specialty of Family Medicine in the United States.
Family Medicine is 50!
The Advisory Board for Medical Specialties certified Family Medicine as an official U.S. specialty on February 8, 1969. Since then, family physicians have made incredible impacts throughout their communities.
