Specialist training in general practice is performed differently in the Nordic countries. Anyhow, the general frame is the same, including supervised and assessed in-service training in primary health care units and hospitals. Descriptions and evaluations of the quality of training are relatively sparse and legislative certification processes are different. Specialist training in general practice also includes specialty-specific theoretical courses and specific education. Because we know very little about differences in the theoretical courses of specialist training in Nordic general practice concerning its content, methodology and pedagogy, we now want to exchange knowledge about it. Methods for evaluation of the courses must be discussed and developed. It is also important to know how well current theoretical education is responding to the needs in general practice. The aim of this workshop is to share experiences and distribute information about valuable and useful issues concerning theoretical education in general practice training. Participants, teachers, trainers, and trainees, are actively involved in discussion and challenged to create a joint opinion concerning this important topic inside our specialist training. The participants will have new ideas and experiences to share and take back to their home countries. The final aim is to improve the theoretical education within the specialist training programmes in general practice. Education Specialist training Theoretical education
