Welcome to the Department of General Practice at the University Medical Center Göttingen

Our mission is to provide and facilitate high-quality student education and patient-oriented research which is an obligation to every member of the department.

Patient-oriented research means, for example, clinical studies with patients to initiate and review new therapies in the primary care setting or studies to improve health care structures. Read more.

High-quality student education includes the training of medical students but also refers to post graduate medical training and is based on modern medicine didactics, the participation of community general practitioners and incorporates inter-professional elements.

To archive this mission we have a dedicated and inter-professional team consisting of the Head of Department – being a general practitioner herself – and team members from the fields of medicine, psychology, sociology and nursing who are supported by a secretary, research assistants and IT-personnel.

There is no active patient care in the department.
