Teaching and Training
As an approved specialist GP training practice, we have a number of GP trainees working within the practice at any one time. All of our GP trainees are fully qualified doctors who have previously worked as hospital doctors and are undergoing part of their specialty general practice training. We also supervise F2 grade doctors who are rotating through posts at the Royal Free and doctors undergoing specialist training in musculoskeletal medicine. All of our trainees are supervised by one of the senior doctors at the practice. From time to time another doctor may sit in with the trainee as an observer for educational purposes.
Medical students are sometimes attached to the practice for 2 – 3 weeks as part of their training. If you do not wish a student to be present during your consultation, please inform the Patient Services Team at reception.
Adelaide Medical Centre works with UCL in the training of medical students. We also support the training of physician associates and nurses. This means we regularly have medical and other healthcare professional students seconded to the practice as part of their studies. Students sometimes sit in with doctors or other members of staff to observe and take part in consultations. If a medical student is with your doctor you will be informed. We very much hope you will participate in the student teaching programme but understand that on some occasions you would rather not have a student present. Please let us know if that is what you would prefer
