Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Friends of General Practice,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in what we do! The aim of our foundation is to support both the next generation of family doctors and scientific research in general practice. In addition to a Junior Academy for motivated students, this includes the coordination of competence centers for specialist training and of regional practice-based research networks.

These objectives, which were defined by our founders in 1973, remain topical to this day. To ensure the provision of high-quality universal primary health care, it is very important to us to systematically further develop this basic idea, and we would be very grateful for any help and support you can provide us with in this endeavor.


Yours sincerely

Prof. Dr. med. Ferdinand M. Gerlach
Chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Directors
