Aims of the course

Faculty development of teachers actively involved in GP/FM training, from competent to proficient level


48 European participants expected (12  sponsored by EURACT)


In order to deliver high quality patient care within a primary health care sector a program of specialty training and continuing education for European GPs is a crucial matter. Such education programs require a skilled workforce of general practitioner teachers, who need to be trained for this purpose.

The Leonardo EURACT courses are based on an expertise model for GP teachers, with courses at 3 levels. This level 2 course is aimed at competent teachers who have participated in a level 1 (new teachers) course (or its equivalent), are actively involved in GP teaching, and will facilitate development as a teacher to the level of proficient. It is focused on providing in depth understanding of teaching methods, spending a whole day on each of three content areas.


The Leonardo EURACT course level 2 course will provide high quality resource materials to each participant to help them during the course and to enable them to cascade their new competences through providing follow up courses at home.

Teaching methods will be active and participatory as so the course will address the needs of those involved in department-based teaching as well as individual trainers. Participants will be encouraged to deliver courses in their home environment, both to novices and to their peers where appropriate. Each of the modules has its own learning aims.


The course will last for three full days, virtually all in small group workshops. There will be an introduction and group forming session, then each participant will rotate through three one-day modules, selecting three of the four modules available on this course at the time of application. If there are no places left in one of your three choices you will be allocated to your fourth choice. (You will be provided with the course materials for all four modules)
