‘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.”
What we have achieved so far with the pilot/ phase 0 of the GP academy and our next stage plans.
This will run alongside the phase 1 of the GP academy assuming the funds are secured and will not be double counted.
The video link is below and is detailed on the report. It was shown at the national Society of Academic Primary Care conference in July 2019.
