The department of Family Medicine and the practice of family medicine started at Beaumont Hospital - Farmington Hills many years ago. The goal of family practice includes preventative medicine, keeping you healthy, while treating the whole body rather than zeroing in on a specific part. Along with keeping you as healthy as possible, family practice doctors can treat all family members, if desired. This familial link can help a doctor diagnose when there is need for medical care.
Our department of Family Medicine is the largest medical department of the hospital, featuring over 100 family medicine doctors.
And Beaumont - Farmington Hills offers residency and fellowship programs to train future doctors. We are a teaching site of Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine.
What does D.O. mean?
A doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) is a fully licensed medical doctor offering all the techniques and treatments of modern medicine with the added benefits of hands-on diagnostics and a holistic philosophy.
The "hands-on" medical treatment is based on an in-depth understanding of how all of the body’s systems are connected.
