A "Study Visit" is arranged through direct contact between the Trainee wishing to participate in the programme and one of the Hosting Practices of the participating countries.
The duration of a visit is 2 weeks. During this time the visitor will obtain a brief but broad introduction to the aspects and the role of General Practice in the respective country by taking part in all the activities of the Host Practice. The visiting trainee will also meet local trainees and take part in their educational as well as social activities.
I had a fairly intense agenda and I participated in all the activities of the practice from normal clinics to on-call commitments, of course always as observer. I met the local GP trainees taking part in one of their vocational training meetings. My social activities were also numerous and I had time for sightseeing as well
I had a very interesting experience when I joined one of the district nurses for home visits. She said to me: "I hope you know how to ride a bicycle", "Why?", I replied. "Well because here we do home visits cycling", she answered. So I spend the day cycling in the rain visiting patients. I was pleased she was impressed by my cycling skills….
I do not speak a word of Danish, so with the exception of a couple of patients, who kindly volunteered to have their consultations in English, I could not follow the majority of the consultations. This problem was solved by the Danish GP who discussed the patients with me during or after the consultations. I was amazed to realise how much you can understand of the patient problems just studying body language when looking at them
