Organisation profile

The Center for General Practice at Aalborg University is an interdisciplinary team. Our aim is to advance the development of general practice. In addition to research, we also facilitate research-based teaching regarding general practice.

At the center research is conducted in several areas, but the main focus areas are musculoskeletal problems across the life span; the application of new technology in general practice; the use of antibiotics and chronic diseases such as diabetes, and treatment of these diseases. Another focus area is how to ensure implementation and effective application of research results into practice. We are involved in and conduct teaching and supervision of students at several departments at AAU, but primarily at the medical school at bachelor and master’s levels.

Center for General Practice at Aalborg University was established in the fall of 2015 as a collaboration between the Research Unit for General Practice in Aalborg, The Danish Research Foundation for General Practice and The Department of Clinical Medicine, Aalborg University.
