Discover Your Passion for Primary Care with our Specialty Training

The establishment of MInTFM is in support of the nation’s goal to have 8,000 more specialists to reach the target of having one specialist for every 4,000 population. The training aims to produce doctors who, on completion of training, will be able to provide the highest quality of primary care to individuals and families in the community.
