At the start of their clinical training in Year 4, students have a week-long placement in General Practice. This is part of the Patient Doctor 2 (“PD2”) Course, which teaches the principles of history-taking and examination. The aims of the Primary Care attachment are to practise and develop clinical skills, as well as to learn about the work of both the GP and the community multi-disciplinary team. Students often attend practices outside of the Oxfordshire area for this attachment, sometimes near to their parents’ homes.
