Formation des médecins généralistes et valorisation de la discipline: Exemple des facultés de Lausanne et de Nancy

Abstract : In France like in Switzerland, general medicine is facing a demographic crisis. This isassociated to disaffection of the students due to a lack of prestige for this discipline. We spent one year of our "Internat" programme in Lausanne and we took profit from our experience as president of RAOUL-IMG, to compare the programmes of education as well as the promotion of the discipline in the faculties ofmedicine of Nancy and Lausanne, In both faculties, we observed the lack of exposure of students to the general medicine during their education and during the clinical training periods. The students do not choose this discipline because but they ignore what it is about. In Nancy, the general medicine became a specialized medical field with a dedicated branch at the university. A training period at a medical practice became mandatory during the "Externat". Students associations and local authorities are taking initiatives to promote the general medicine in Lorraine. In Lausanne, a dedicated academie field (IUMG) has been created. The coaching of students by experienced doctors, a mandatory training period at a medical practice and the creation of a dedicated education programme are contributing to the promotion of the discipline. A postgraduated education programme for the medicine general and a plan for post-graduatedstudents in medical practices have been created in the French-speaking Swiss. These initiatives contribute to improve the quality of general practitioners education by making it more adapted to their future practice.
