In brief: Specialty training
General practice doctors typically do not have board certification.
Both internal medicine doctors and family practice physicians complete a three year residency which educates them on the various types of patients they will encounter in practice. Internal medicine physicians primarily treat adults, family practice physicians treat adults, children, and pregnant women.
