General Practice/Family Medicine

The mission of the department of general practice is to improve the quality of care in general practice by conducting clinical research in the fields of cardiovascular diseases and oncology and palliative care, research into ethical issues , and research into educational methods. Our ambition for 2016-2020  is to intensify research on the cutting edge of these three fields and maintain a steady scientific output. Finally, we strive for a strong relation with our environment and a significant societal impact through participation in (inter)national guideline setting for practice and education, and by playing a visible role in national debates on ethical issues and quality in healthcare.
