As the field of family medicine celebrates 55 years, the April issue of a leading international journal Family Medicine and Community Health (FMCH), published by BMJ Journals, is dedicated to reflections on the profession of family medicine. The April issue titled “Storylines of Family Medicine: Reflections on History, Theories, and Practice” includes contributions from primary care/family medicine scholars worldwide, and a forward written by Li Li, MD, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of FMCH. Dr. Li is the Walter M. Seward Professor and chair of Family Medicine, director of population health, and co-director of the Cancer Prevention and Population Health program.

Dr. Li states, “The 99 short essays authored by 136 frontline family physicians, educators, and scholars share profound wisdom and insight into what defines and differentiates family medicine. These rich articles go beyond Starfield’s 4Cs of comprehensiveness, first contact, coordination, and continuity, to bring to life family medicine’s integrating, personalizing focus on the whole person in their family and community context.”

This special issue celebrating the profession of family medicine is being highlighted by the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine at their annual meeting in Los Angeles, CA, on May 5.
