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. 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 order to strengthen GP care, the Institute is committed to the establishment of a competence centre for general practice. This supports doctors in further vocational training (specialist registrars) with seminars and mentoring during specialist training and at the same time offers a training programme for physicians licensed for further vocational training. Training concepts for medical studies can thus be used for continuing medical education. In close cooperation with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, German Hospital Federation and the German Medical Association, the Kompetenzzentrum Weiterbildung Berlin began its work in 2018.
