In the first week of this course we will address important issues related to the development of a high quality academic training program for general practice. Principles of teaching and training, the content of a solid curriculum, aspects of student assessment and quality assurance within educational organizations will be discussed. You are provided with knowledge to draft the 'optimal' specialty training for general practice.

The second week will focus on different aspects of quality assessment in primary health care: the impact of professional guidelines, quality management programs, development of indicators and visitation. You are challenged to assess the quality of care in a real clinical practice, by performing your own official visitation.

The multi-cultural background of the participants provides a unique opportunity to learn about the universal and country-specific characteristics of teaching, training and quality of care assessment in general practice.
