The contracted service of family doctors is a key task in an important stage of deepening the comprehensive reform of grass-roots health and promoting graded diagnosis and treatment.By analyzing the relevant papers on the contract services of family doctors included in CNKI from 2011 to 2020, this study uses CiteSpace software to carry out visual analysis from the aspects of time, author, and keywords, and sort out the evolution trend of its research through the obtained knowledge map.It is found that many authors and institutions with high academic influence have issued documents on the research of Family doctor contract service in China, and the number of documents has shown an increasing trend on the whole.However, more academic research is still superficial and not deep enough. Future research should strengthen the close cooperation between authors and cross-regional institutions.
