The practice is part of the Nottingham University Vocational Training Scheme, which provides training for our future GPs. These doctors spend time in general practice at various stages throughout their final 3 years of training, ranging from a 4 month placement in each of the first two years, to a 12 month placement for their final year. The trainees are closely supervised at all times by our current partners.
We also offer placements for 1st and 2nd year medical students and you will sometimes meet them during their initial training. They usually visit the practice on a Wednesday morning to observe a morning surgery and will sit in with a GP who is responsible for supervising them. You will always be told if a student is present before your appointment and you have the choice to ask them to leave the consulting room if you prefer.
