Introduction to Family Medicine

by Charles Vega, MD

Become an expert in family medicine!

Family physicians provide comprehensive health services to a broad range of patients and attend to a multitude of different health issues. It can seem overwhelming, but in this course we will teach you to think like a family physician: to provide complete, efficient, and evidence-based healthcare that focuses on the patient's priorities. This not only makes you a better physician, it also helps you get more questions right on USMLE Step 2!

  • Describe the family medicine approach to patient care.
  • Evaluate how to practice efficient medicine that minimizes the use of unnecessary tests and treatments.
  • Learn to apply the family medicine approach to common case scenarios encountered on USMLE Step 2.

With this course you don't have to worry about your test scores anymore. We will support you with solid additional material to take your studies even further.

After watching our high-quality video lectures you can reinforce what you have learned with topic reviews, test yourself with quiz questions and download the slides you have seen in the video lectures. Take notes and review the material again if you need to. All at your own pace!

Start now and prepare yourself in the best possible way.
