Abstract: For faculty development in family medicine and academic qualification of general practioners the German College of General Practitioners and Family Physicians (DEGAM) offers a course of professional development. Part of the curriculum is a one week elective in a foreign country with a well established primary care system. As a member of the 5th “Prof-Kurs” I had the opportunity to visit the Department of Family Medicine of the University of Toledo College of Medicine to compare the German medical educational system with the different undergraduate and graduate medical educational system in the United States.
