Institute of General Practice - Your competent partner for research, studies and further vocational training in General Practice and Family Medicine
The Institute of General practice provides medical students with a comprehensive understanding of general practice and ambulatory care. Therefore, we implement and further develop innovative teaching concepts in medical education. Thanks to diverse compulsory and optional teaching methods, to our close cooperation with 400 teaching practices in Berlin and Brandenburg and to our network with external stakeholders, the institute offers a solid basis for the constant development of our projects. Our aim is to strengthen the term-overlapping orientation of General Practice in medical studies in future.
In research, we focus our efforts on the analysis and development of primary care models offering the best possible treatment for ambulatory patients. Questions concerning multi-professionalism and optimized interfaces are pioneering fields of our work. We are committed to develop, implement and to scientifically evaluate innovative approaches. The integration of the GP perspective on these concepts and constant feedback of the results to patients and their family doctors is an important issue for us.
In future, the Institute wants to enhance the continuity of innovative training concepts for medical students who want to become GPs. This requires structures that support the transition of further vocational training in General Practice. In close cooperation with the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Berlin, the German Hospital Federation and the German Medical Association, we want to strengthen primary care through our commitment for competence centers in General Practice.
