The role of today's family physician is changing more rapidly than at any other point in modern medicine. Family physicians have been classically trained to be able to care for people "from cradle to grave," however, with the rise of specialization, coupled with vast advances in medical knowledge, the scope and expectations of a family physician is undergoing a radical shift. Joyful and successful family physicians of the future must become experts in truly removing barriers to wellness at all stages of life, preparing and supporting families to raise empowered and healthy children. The family physician of the future will utilize technology in real time to communicate with patients, will employ innovative self tracking and educational platforms to help patients make meaningful change, and above all, will approach disease and wellness utilizing an ancestral or evolutionary framework.
