The discipline of Family Medicine is gaining prominence as a vehicle for promoting effective primary health care.

Why study with us?

Come and join us in an innovative programme to create Family Medicine practitioners across the globe. Working with the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and our international partners you will gain a Master of Family Medicine.

As a Family Medicine practitioner you will become the “specialist generalist” providing continuous, comprehensive and co-ordinated care to patients throughout their lives.

You will gain an understanding of the principles, processes and practices of Family Medicine and will develop as a reflective practitioner with an understanding of your role in working alongside the patient, family and community. You will also have an opportunity to hone many of your clinical skills in a structured manner.

You will become the expert able to contribute to national and local policy; taking forward a new way of providing healthcare that is equitable and that goes some way to meet the Sustainable Development Goals for the future.

We anticipate that this programme will attract medical graduates who have a vision for improving the way that healthcare is delivered for rural and poorer communities. It will be a valuable degree for doctors concerned to shape global health policy through the WHO agenda for more equitable and primary health led care.
