Aim of the subject and its place in the curriculum: Health care is based on the family practice system. It’s important for future doctors to get to know the gatekeeping function of family practices. It’s also important to show them on a one-to-one tutoring basis that family practice is an integrating profession. While getting involved in the work of the family practice medical students are introduced to the preventive approach, the ways of how to solve holistic, complex, bio-psycho-social and somatic problems and the differential diagnostics of frequent diseases. The aim is to teach them how to use and apply the basic means of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and tools, to give them an insight into the most frequent laws and courses of action they may meet, to develop the medical students’ communication skills in practice and to practise how to work with short interventions.

Type and method of grading6: Assessment and grading of the course: with a 1 to 5 term mark:

Assessment and grading of the course with a 1 to 5 term mark:
It’s based on the student’s activity, participation through the training assessed by the tutor (40 percent) and the grade of the required case study (60 percent).

Assessment of the case study is based on the following:

Grade 1: failing to hand in the essay by deadline, the case study is not
original, but plagiarism
Grade 2: the number of characters is under 3,000; absence of a required part of the case study, serious professional failure
Grade 3: 2-3 professional or formal mistakes, unsophisticated wording
Grade 4: characters more than 6,000; one not too significant professional mistake
Grade 5: requirements fulfilled, precise and accurate wording in the medical jargon, logical conclusions
