3. To recognize conditions that due to the need of diagnosis techniques and/or more specific therapies, should be timely referred to Specialties;
4. To diagnose emergency situations and to know how to initiate the more indicated therapeutic measures;
5. To be familiar, even briefly, with the more rare conditions.
