Strong primary care requires competent family doctors who are forward-thinking and keen to develop new relationships with patients and other health professionals in primary and secondary care. To address global population health challenges, and expand primary care for patients worldwide, the University of Nicosia (UNIC) Medical School offers a Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Family Medicine delivered online.

It is a structured continuing professional development programme for physicians working as Family Doctors or in the community with a specialist role in internal medicine, paediatrics, or gynaecology.

Why Study Family Medicine?

This Family Medicine programme from University of Nicosia was reported in the British Journal of General Practice, May 2019 (Vol. 69 Issue 682), a leading international journal for family doctors. It describes the development and unique contribution the programme makes to family medicine on the world stage

With the rise of chronic diseases, these diseases cannot be prevented or managed without people-centred primary care. Data reveals, family doctors can manage 95% of the health problems while absorbing only 5% of the national health budget. World Health Organization (WHO)

With an aging population the jobs related to healthcare services are projected to grow more than any of the other occupational groups with a projected growth rate of 14 percent from 2018-2028, significantly higher growth rate than average for all occupations, adding about 1.9 million new jobs.
