Here is a family medicine genogram. A genogram is merely a graphical representation of a patient's family relationships and medical history. It can provide a quick and useful context for assessing a person's health risks. A genogram can assist a physician in incorporating a patient's family history into the medical problem-solving process, resulting in improved patient care. A genogram enables a clinician to readily acquire medical and psychological information from a patient, providing a better knowledge of the context of the presenting symptoms.
