Abstract

Many people ask me whether I have switched my practice from family medicine to musculoskeletal medicine. My answer is always: “No, I’ve never changed my specialty. Practicing musculoskeletal medicine is, actually, part of my family practice!” In my view point, a good musculoskeletal physician is no different from a competent family physician. They are all holistic, know their patients well, understand their relationship with families, have a good patient-centered consultation skill and practice preventive medicine. The only difference is that a musculoskeletal physician has to have an in-depth knowledge and skill in musculoskeletal medicine that needs further training.
