Clinics in Family Practice succeeds in accomplishing its stated goal of providing family practitioners with the unique attitudes, skills, and knowledge that they need "to provide continuing and comprehensive medical care, health care maintenance, and preventive services to a broad range of patients." Barbara S. Apgar, MD, MS, a leader in family medicine, is the consulting editor for the series. She selects both the topic for each issue and a guest editor with special expertise in that subject area. The guest editor then selects that issue's contributing authors, who prepare articles discussing the various aspects of the chosen topic. This is an effective means of integrating points of view from both family practice and specialist perspectives.
