Primary care given more recognition in higher education

A national advisory group on general medicine has been created to give family doctors in France more influence on medical education.

Marisol Touraine, France’s minister for social affairs and health, and Geneviève Fioraso, the state secretary for higher education and research, announced on 28 November that the CNU, which advises the government on higher education and research, had set up a subcommittee for the recognition of general medicine.

Fioraso said this decision had been long awaited by many professionals in the field, and was a forward step in “the recognition of general medicine as a specialty of excellence”.
