Our goal is to support general practitioners (GPs) in the care of patients with depression. In our research training group, junior scientists will conduct clinical research in the field of general practice and thereby help improve care structures, processes and results. We have created a comprehensive qualification concept, which enables doctoral candidates from relevant disciplines as well as prospective GPs to receive a structured scientific education parallel to their clinical training.

Additional support is offered by the GraduateCenter
