General medicine of the
21st century starts today

Family Medicine

Doctors of General Medicine should offer a modern, safe and high-quality care for their patients. With research from practice for practice, we want to find answers to the challenges of the future and implement evidence-based medicine better in everyday life of general practitioners

"From practice for practice" – The institute's slogan stands for the development of general medicine in teaching and research together with the scientific staff and the teaching physicians. We take into account modern teaching concepts as well as general practitioners input and evidence-based healthcare research.

By linking the work of the Institute with the know-how from General Practitioners in their practice, the team brings the experience directly to research and teaching.

Our goal is to provide students a true-to-life primary care medicine that not only sees the disease, but also focuses on the person with his resources and complaints together with his individual personality and his specific life story in the context of his social environment. In doing so, we would like to arouse interest in general practice in the context of primary care in rural areas and motivate students for further training in general medicine.

According to the motto "General practice can only be learned in general practice", our teaching physicians and the insittue enable experience areas for students in gp practices − be it in elective practical year or during their clinical traineeship. 

The good cooperation with general practitioners as well as clinics, institutes and other institutions is important to us. They are an important area of our work in order to promote training, further education and training as well as general medical profession and health services research.
