As stated in the field of core competencies of our Medical School, it is aimed to educate young physicians to be graduated from the School of Medicine with sufficient ability to manage these health problems.
In our Medical School, especially in the first three years, in the Introduction to Clinical Practice program; in the phase 2 program, which includes the 4th and 5th grades and carried out with a multidisciplinary approach and in the 6th grade Community Health Program, students have learning objectives for the health problems of the community and health practices.
In our country, there is a need for field-trained physicians to provide a strong primary health care service, which is the key point for solving problems such as high cost in the health system and lack of integration between different service levels. The center will make a significant contribution to this area as a model of excellence.
