The GP Academy
‘The GP Academy’ run by the University of Nottingham and supported by the General Practice Task Force uses medical education to train and retain GPs in the region. Talking in the BJGP the team say:
“Our early findings show, among other things, increased resilience, increased understanding of their own training, learning styles, and educational needs, increased desire to work as a GP, increased interest in medical education as part of their portfolio career, increased interest in supervising medical students in practice once qualified, and an increased desire to stay locally in the region because of the positive career links and longitudinal support the trainees have identified.”
Applications for the next cohort will be advertised shortly.
