RURAL PRACTICE NOWADAYS
AIM: To exhibit the differences between GP rural training programs across Europe.
METHODS: Through a cross-sectional study, we compare the structure and quality of the GP vocational training schemes in the rural areas among European countries.
RESULTS: The evaluation has registered vast differences whithin compulsory GP programmes but the same needs in each country.
CONCLUSIONS: General Practice Education must include a special practice training based in rural settings, because remote medicine is another way to feel the kind of real doctor you are.
