Abstract: 

TURKIYE ACCORDING TO THE ”SOCIALIZATION OF HEALTH SERVICES” LAW, HEALTH CARE HAS BEEN EXPECTED TO BE PROVIDED BY THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF CARE. THE MEDICAL PRACTITIONER IN PRIMARY CARE WAS EXPECTED TO SOLVE MOST PROBLEMS IN PRIMARY CARE AND TO RELIEF THE SECONDARY HEALTH CARE SERVICES. THIS HAS NOT BEEN PROVEN TO BE REAL NOWADAYS. PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS LACK TOOLS AND INSTRUMENTS TO PERFORM HIGH QUALITY HEALTH CARE IN THEIR COMMUNITIES. ADEQUATE PROVISION OF CPD AND MENTAL/PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT IS ALSO MISSING. RECRUITMENT OF NEW GRADUATES TO PRIMARY CARE SERVICES IS ANOTHER OBSTACLE AND PRIMARY CARE SERVICES ARE MOSTLY SEEN AS A SECOND CHOICE CLERKSHIPS IN FAMILY MEDICINE IN UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL TRAINING PROGRAMS MAY HELP MEDICAL FACULTIES TO REACH THEIR EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES CONCERNING THIS. BESIDES SOME SHORT INTRODUCTORY LECTURES THE USE OF PRACTICAL SESSIONS, PROBLEM BASED LEARNING SESSIONS ARE WIDELY APPLIED TO ENHANCE THE LEARNING PROCESS IN STUDENTS. THE EDUCATIONAL AGENDA OF EURACT PROVIDES A GOOD FRAME FOR THESE PROGRAMS CHALLENGES TO OBTAIN SPACE AND SLOTS IN UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULA IS THE MAIN OBSTACLE OF SUCH NEW AND INNOVATIVE TRAINING PROGRAMS. PROVIDING EVIDENCE OF GOOD OUTCOMES IS ANOTHER PROBLEM BECAUSE OF LACK OF EXPERIENCE IN TURKISH CONTEXT, EVEN THE NORTHERN EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN POSITIVE EXPERIENCE OF THE LAST DECADES.
