The research elective is aimed at students in years 4-6 at medical universities. The number of participants is limited to two students per year. In the case of great demand, students from higher medical years will have priority. Students work and do the research on key areas of ageing, multimorbidity and polypharmacy and prevention in family medicine. These areas are viewed as the combination of awareness, knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviours that, when applied in a healthcare setting, result in a maximally beneficial outcome for both the patient and the provider.
