In the Balkan context education in general practice varies greatly and it is in different stages of reorganisation and curriculum development. The postgraduate training in family medicine in Albania started in January 1997 with the goal of providing future family doctors with the proper knowledge, skills, attitudes, and professional values that will enable them to address the medical problems in the community. This paper describes the structure and content of the training programme and discusses some of its key elements.
