MALAYSIA-IRELAND TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR FAMILY MEDICINE (MINTFM)
Family medicine has been recognised as essential to achieving universal health coverage for the population. Where once the family physician was a reliable first contact for health concerns, they are now at the frontline of chronic disease management, paediatric and women’s healthcare, family planning, and mental health management.
With a rising global population and increased life expectancy, family medicine is the key to managing healthcare in the community in a cost effective and efficient manner. Family Physicians make a difference!
Family medicine specialist training aims to produce doctors who, on completion of training, will be able to provide personal and continuing care to individuals and families in the community. They will also have the management skills and approaches to enable the organisation and delivery of the highest quality primary care.
