Who are they and where do they come from?
The journey of a Doctor - Medical school for 4-5 year before qualifying, next step foundation training for 2 years, speciality training for 3 years for GP.
After Training = Independant GPs have 3 routes that they can take, become a partner within a practice, be a salaried GP or 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'
