Training for Doctors and future Doctors
The practice participates in the advanced training of qualified foundation year doctors in their 2nd year. Our foundation years doctors are fully qualified doctors and have worked for one or more years in hospital posts. They work with us for a period of time to share all aspects of medical care. Video cameras are sometimes used for training but you will be informed in advance if your consultation is to be recorded and you have the right to refuse.
Medical Student Training
The practice is a teaching practice attached to the Imperial College London and Hull/York Medical School. We occasionally have medical students working with us for short periods. This is one of the few opportunities for medical students to see patients in a community setting. We hope you will co-operate with us in giving students this valuable experience. You do have the right not to have a medical student present during your consultation.
Postgraduate Medical Education
As a teaching practice, it may be necessary for your doctor to attend medical education courses, thus reducing their surgeries. This is necessary to maintain high standards of medical care and education.
