What type of procedures does a Family Medicine practitioner do?
Procedure training varies between residencies. Even if a program does not offer a particular procedure there is additional procedure training with institutions like NPI and fellowships (rural medicine and others).
The most common diagnostic procedures done by FM based on AAFP Data but not limited to these are:
- Dermatologic procedures
- Holter monitoring
- Others (colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy)
