Over the past decades there have been many new developments in medical education due to new public health challenges and to new learning theories. Medical schools throughout the world have adapted to these challenges in adopting community-based learning activities, an approach that the World Health Organization has promoted. The aim of the present article is to describe the characteristics, as well as the evolution, of such a community-based training program which has been implemented over 15 years at the Faculty of medicine of the University of Geneva and to present some evaluation data addressing students' perception, achievement of learning objectives as well as interactions between students and the community.
