GP Registrars and Medical Students
"We are an undergraduate teaching practice, and patients may occasionally be asked if a student can sit in on their consultation, or if they wish to participate in teaching. If you are not happy with this, please let us know. We understand some people may not wish to have a student present during their consultation, and will respect the wishes of the patient at all times."
Who are they and where do they come from?
The journey to become a Doctor - Medical school for 5 - 6 years before qualifying. The next step is Foundation years 1 and 2 training, lasting for 2 years. Then speciality training for a further 3 years to become a GP.
After Training Independant GPs have a choice of 3 routes that they can take to work in Primary Care, they can become a GP Partner within a practice, be a salaried GP or some choose to do locum/out of hours work.
Why be a teaching practice?
'Every registrar brings something new'
'Helps keep the practice up to date'
'High proportions of registrars come back as locums or even partners'
'Attracts new people to a rural community'
