Family Medicine in the Netherlands has developed a well-established and highly valued program for quality management, both in patient care and in professional specialty training for general practice. If you want to learn the essentials you need to know about the development and assessment of high quality health care in general practice and the training of competent primary care doctors, then this may be a course for you.

In the first week of this course we will address important issues related to the development of a high quality academic training program for general practice. The content of a solid curriculum, aspects of student assessment and quality assurance within educational organizations will be discussed.

The second week will focus on different aspects of quality assessment in primary health care in different settings: the impact of professional guidelines, quality management programs, and innovations to improve quality of care.

The summercourse will be organized in Utrecht, a charming city with tree-lined canals and a medieval quarter.
