Family Medicine is primary care for individuals and families across all ages, genders, and diseases. Family Medicine providers care for all members of a family during all phases of life – infancy, adolescence, adulthood, and senior years.

Patients who receive care from Boston Medical Center’s Department of Family Medicine select a primary care provider from a group of physicians and nurse practitioners who are trained to meet their healthcare needs, whether in the office, hospital, at home, or in a nursing home. This provider partners with a team dedicated to coordinating the patient’s care which includes staying healthy, arranging tests to manage chronic conditions, referrals to integrated behavioral health providers and medical specialists, streamlining hospital admissions, and more.
