Year Four GP Sessions

We organize GP sessions during the students’ District General Hospital (DGH) rotation in Reading, Swindon, High Wycombe or Northampton. We liaise with the Medical School, the regional co-ordinators, the GP Tutors and the Students. The Administrator along with the teaching co-ordinator attend annual meetings with participating practices in these four regional areas.

Year Five Primary Care Attachment

The Year five six-week attachment in Primary Care places students in General Practice. The course provides further one-to-one teaching for the students and enables students to see patients on their own for the first time, whilst under the supervision of their GP Tutor. We organise departmental seminars and teaching resources, summative assessment and liaise with practices and students.

In such an intensive block, it is common for students to incur problems and we emphasize to  students at the induction meeting for the course,as well as throughout the six weeks, that we are here to support and guide them if they are having difficulties. Students have indicated that they value this mentoring approach.
