MSc Family Medicine

The MSc in family medicine online is led by dedicated expert tutors who are exceptionally experienced in their fields, sharing their high-level knowledge directly with their students.

Programme Overview

Despite the fact that Family Medicine is recognised for its importance, it is acknowledged that the healthcare system does not easily adapt to the changing needs of society, particularly when it comes to concerns about “overcare” and “undercare,” both of which can be significantly reduced by the development of family practitioner education.

A global effort to educate medical professionals on the subject is required to enact change that will expand the scope of family medicine. Learna strives to help the situation and is proud to be one of the few healthcare education providers offering a MSc in family medicine online.
