General practitioner

For medical assistance, the usual practice in the Netherlands is for a patient to have an initial consultation with a general practitioner (Dutch: huisarts), before making an appointment with a specialist in hospital.

Erasmus University Rotterdam has made arrangements with the following general practitioners:
