<p>Every year, we tour a leading country for family medicine with new trainees and staff who join the Department of Community and Family Medicine at Fukushima Medical University. This time we visited Denmark. In Denmark, General Practitioners (GPs) see their patients by a list system. GPs work as a gatekeeper and solve many kinds of health problems. GP training is a 5-year program, and the training system is well established. It is usual for both GP trainees and their partners to work and raise their children during the training.</p>
