Reform for the future

A Leeds General Practice expert is helping to reform the outdated curriculum of the National Medical University of Mongolia. The current system, based on a Russian model, emphasises the production of specialists rather than general practitioners. Professor Conrad Harris of the Academic Unit of General Practice is leading a consortium of European universites helping the restructuring process. The project is being funded by the EU.

Two teachers from the Medical University came to Europe for three weeks as part of the programme and ended their visit with a meeting with the members of the European consortium in Leeds.
