Programme info

In Belgium, the majority of GPs work in solo-practice. Many of them work without support of auxiliary staff. A large number of GPs will retire in the coming decennium. Recent studies indicate new graduates prefer working in larger group practices. The University of Antwerp, in collaboration with university colleges for nursing studies, organises this post-bachelor training course for registered nurses to take up tasks in primary care.
