Today's healthcare challenges-whether strengthening health systems, improving the quality of our patient care, or enhancing access to healthcare-require strong primary care.
To address these global population health challenges, the University of Nicosia Medical School offers a Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Family Medicine delivered entirely online. It is a structured continuing professional development programme for physicians working as Family Doctors or in the community with a specialist role in internal medicine, paediatrics, or gynaecology.
The minimum full time duration of the MSc programme in Family Medicine is 18 months (three semesters), with a flexible part-time option of up to four academic years. The first two semesters consist of eight core clinically focused modules. Semester three is primarily research-oriented, offering an opportunity for students to develop their research skills. Students who do not wish to continue with the 3rd semester can receive a Postgraduate Diploma in Family Medicine following the successful completion of the first two semesters.
The University of Nicosia Medical School is accredited by the UK Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) to deliver the MRCGP International exam in Cyprus. Students successfully completing the first two semesters and meeting the RCGP's clinical experience eligibility criteria will be entitled to sit the examination in Cyprus to qualify as an International Member of the RCGP.
