We undertake training of 4th year medical students. These are students early in their medical training who are learning skills of history taking and examination. If you are offered an appointment where medical students are present, you will be advised. Appointments will be with one of our GP Trainers, but the medical students are encouraged to interact with patients for example they may take a history or perform a medical examination.
From April 2013 there will be FY2 doctors at the practice. These doctors have completed medical school training and a further 12-18 months of postgraduate training while in hospitals. Their time with us is the first introduction to working in general practice.
FY2 Doctors are placed with a Practice for 4 months and will have their own surgery when they see patients. They are supervised by one of our GP Trainers during their experience of working in general practice.
