In October we will be teaching Year 2 students. In each of these two years of study, students attend a GP practice or other primary care setting for half-day placements where they will have varied experience.
Placements provide a valuable opportunity for students to practice the communication and clinical skills they learn on campus, whilst experiencing the diversity of primary care in their first two years of training. The identified lead GP tutor in the individual placement will be responsible for overseeing the students’ learning and progression over the course of the year’s GP placement visits.
Students can apply an understanding of broader aspects of healthcare, including psychosocial elements and public health considerations, to assist in developing and delivering personalised care for patients and populations.
Patient consent and confidentiality are our priority, students will follow the same policies and procedures in line with GDPR.
