La formation des internes en médecine générale en Turquie : mise en parallèle avec la France. Exemple d'Izmir et de Nancy

Abstract : Primary health care plays an essential role in a health care system and general practitioners (GP) are main actors. Quality of their training is the guarantee of efficient system that meets the needs of the community. European Union Directives aim at improving and harmonizing the specific training of GPs in order to facilitate their free movement. Turkey, a country in the middle of the process of accession to the European Union, is giving priority to develop the general medicine. We wanted to discover the training of Turkish family doctors in order to be able to identify similarities and differences between Turkey and France. A qualitative study was made by comparing the specific training of family practiceresidents in Izmir and in Nancy. Specializing in family medicine in Turkey is provided by two different structures: university and non-university. To be able to practice as a family doctor, the specialization is not mandatory. The overall organization of academic training in Smyrna, focused on theoretical teaching, internships and training in general medicine, is close to that of Nancy, in contrast to nonuniversitytraining based only on internships in hospitals. At the Izmir University, intern students participate actively in training accompanied with a tutor and their evaluation is ongoing and systematic ; the training puts more emphasis on the approach in medicine of first resort and on the research training. The internship in general medicine is longer than in Nancy, covering half of the course, but the context of learning is less adaptable. The creation of health training center and academic research is planned
