The National Research School in General Practice is intended to provide doctoral students in general practice with opportunities and experiences that are not normally offered by third-cycle studies. The hope is that the research school will stimulate creativity and sustainable environments in which to conduct research in primary healthcare and encourage multidisciplinary research.
Through the research school, doctoral students are given the opportunity to establish contacts in Sweden and abroad. The research school is supported by all Swedish universities with faculties of medicine. The school’s director and administrator are based at Umeå University.
A large proportion of teaching activities take place online. Doctoral students are offered a wide range of third-cycle courses, some of which are adapted to meet their individual needs.
