The research activities of the Institute of General Practice not only describe the special features of care provided by family physicians, but also examine the effects on the quality of care and show what opportunities lie in these special features. Since the doctor-patient relationship plays such a central role in family medicine, it is a particular concern of the Institute to evaluate structural problems and solutions already in medical school and also in specialist training, in order to contribute to good family medicine patient care by improving the training of future physicians. Our research activities are reflected in numerous publications.
