Romanian National Society of Family Medicine (SNMF)    Back


University accreditation does not apply to courses from this institution


25 years ago, a group of dedicated doctors transformed the GP medical qualification in Romania into a “clinical specialty" and achieved the “independent” status. This meant the start of a three year GP residency program. Later, the GP became FD (Family Doctor). Six years of general medical education (university) and three years of specialized training (residency in family medicine) have been since needed to become a family medicine specialist.

Facts about SNMF:

  • We represent a quarter of the total of the Romanian doctors (12000 family doctors)
  • We are still developing our own Society and its 41 local organizations.
  • We strive for togetherness and believe that unity means strength.
  • Family medicine in rural Romania is often the only medical service easily available to everybody
  • Three independent patient satisfaction surveys in 2010 showed over 70% of patients are satisfied and trust their Romanian GPs
