Some clinics have ultrasound and x-ray (e.g. mammography) facilities, while most take care of minor emergencies. There are also dieticians, dentists, pharmacists, nurses, physiotherapist and sub-specialty physicians who work closely with the family physicians.
The Family Medicine Department makes use of these clinics in order to teach medical students and family medicine specialist in a real life context. Therefore, medical students have the opportunity to both observe and take part in patient care while under direct professional supervision.
