Public attitudes to family medicine in Turkey have lagged behind its rapid academic development. The effect of undergraduate

training in primary care on medical students’ attitudes to family medicine has not been assessed. Objectives

of this study were to assess the attitudes of first year medical students at Uludag University School of Medicine in Bursa,

Turkey to family medicine and to determine their career aspirations. The study was a survey of the first year medical

class in 2003–2004. The response rate was 95% 248-261 students. Students were positive about their choice of medicine

as a career but had negative opinions of general practice. Female students were more positive in this respect. Initial preference

was for specialization in fields other than general practice with little knowledge of the academic specialty of family

medicine. Greater undergraduate exposure to family medicine is needed in order to increase knowledge of the field

and influence student career choices.
