UEMO Statement on General Practice/Family Medicine as a Medical Specialty
The UEMO General Assembly:

1. mandates the presidency to seek to secure the inclusion of general practice as a specialist discipline recognised under Title III of the Directive

2. believes that the demands of general practice require a training period of 5 years and will continue working to that end

3. will continue to explore the potential of systems of competency based training and assessment.
