Family Medicine is the division responsible for the holistic medical care of individuals within the context of their families and the community. The division of Family Medicine and Primary Care puts emphasis on a patient-centred approach to primary care in its teaching, based on a firm foundation of biomedical science and clinical skills. The research activities of the division focus on the development of quality primary care within a district health system, and to develop innovative teaching methods in the health sciences.
