In 2010, the medical school at Aalborg University was established. The studies include, among other, an introduction to the specialty of family medicine. This introduction provides the medical student with an understanding of the characteristics of general practice as well as for the value of continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and the family. The students achieve skills to handle both unreferred health problems as well as planned care of chronic disease.
The unit focuses on methods for optimization of cohesion between theoretical teaching and the clinical stay in general practice, as well as optimization of learning outcomes during the clinical stay. This in order to promote potentials for learning, motivation and reflection among the medical students.
Additionally, the group explores factors important for the individual’s future career choices. This includes investigating which factors are important in terms of recruitment for both different medical specialties as well as the geographically more remote areas.
