This is an optional month-long course, designed to offer students greater experience of Primary Care. Involving both small-group teaching and a clinical attachment in a local surgery, it explores what makes general practice such a complex, exciting and rewarding specialty.

The aims are for the students to:

  • See patients in Primary Care and gain further understanding of the work of a GP
  • Practise clinical skills, particularly history-taking and examination 
  • Reflect on the unique challenges associated with looking after patients in Primary Care 
  • Concentrate on an area of special interest to produce a poster project
