Prof. Dr. Antonius Schneider
Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Schneider (*1969) has been director of the Institute of General Medicine, the first chair of family medicine in Bavaria, since 2009. A major research focus is on strategies to improve diagnostic methods in family practice, e.g. in obstructive respiratory diseases and in the detection of depressive disorders. "Patient empowerment" and "health literacy" represent another focus. Topics of health care research are also integrated into these research activities, such as the importance of GP coordination for better health care management.
Prof. Schneider studied at the universities of Gießen, Freiburg and Heidelberg. His clinical training took place at the Municipal Hospital of Karlsruhe and the University Hospital of Heidelberg, where he habilitated at the Institute of General Medicine and Health Services Research (2008). From 2007 to 2009 he was in private practice in Leimen near Heidelberg, until he received the call to the chair in 2009.
