The Importance of Family Medicine in MAINE

Family physicians are residency-trained, primary care specialists dedicated to treating the whole person. With a focus on prevention, primary care, and overall care coordination, family physicians provide a wide variety of clinical services, and, when necessary, refer their patients to a specialist, while continuing to advocate for that patient’s care.

FamMedPAC, the American Academy of Family Physicians’ federal political action committee, advocates for family physicians and their patients in Washington, D.C. by helping to elect congressional candidates who support the AAFP’s legislative goals and objectives.
