Teaching in Primary Care
We believe strongly that our students should receive a significant part of their education in the community, for many reasons: to learn about the health and illness of individuals and populations in the context of their families and communities, to understand the natural history of common minor and major illness, to see how primary and secondary care relate to each other in health services, to experience the diagnostic, management and organisational features of general practice, and to look into the “shop window” for a potential career opportunity. We rely on the dedication of our network of community-based teachers, who, with our excellent administrative and academic team, deliver a first class education and learning experience for over 2400 students each year.
