KUMEC Curriculum Change 2020

The GKT School of Medical Education introduced a new undergraduate curriculum in September 2016.  GP teaching now takes the form of a longitudinal GP placement in Stage 2 (Year 2) and an 8-week “GP apprenticeship” block placement in Stage 3 (Year 5).  There are also opportunities for GPs to host students for Quality Improvement Projects.
