Ours is a training practice for medical students. From time to time Year 3 and Year 4 students sit in with our GPs as part of their training. We feel that we are playing a valuable role in the education of the next generation of doctors, and feedback from ‘real’ patients in the GP surgery is an important part of their learning.
Year 5 students carry out their own consultations under the supervision of one of our GPs. You will always be asked for your permission for a student to be present during your consultation, and you have the right to refuse.
