In the module family medicine/medical problem solving, basic principles on medical problem solving (medical decisional principles both on diagnosis and treatment) are taught. Students learn also about tasks and fucntions specific for family medicine/general practice. 

It is necessary to know the basic principles of family medicine- both for students who will later do clinical work in the hospital as for those who will work as family physicians.
