At Cam and Uley Family Practice we are proud to be a Training Practice. Throughout the year we have various Students working alongside our GP's.
We currently have 2 x GP Trainees, Dr Laura Corbett and Dr Sarah Tomlinson, who are qualified Doctors working with us for 12 months to specialise in becoming General Practitioners. They hold full consultation clinics and are mentored by GP Partners.
5th Year Students
These students come to work with us for 4 weeks. They hold consultations, usually in pairs, with a GP overseeing an appointment if necessary.
4th Year Students
These students also come for 4 weeks and hold consultations which are longer than usual, usually 30 minutes with the GP mentor coming into the appointment to oversee at the end of the consultation.
3rd Year Students
A GP Partner tutors 4 x 3rd year students who visit the surgery for one day a month. If the GP Partner has an interesting medical case that would benefit the training of the students then we do have some very willing patients who agree to come and be examined, give medical histories and symptoms etc.
This is vital experience for their future.
Thank you for helping us in helping shape the future of GP's in the NHS.
