This course is primarily taught online through King’s E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS), which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Our students participate in online tutorials and discussion groups, interacting with expert tutors and their fellow students. Face-to-face lectures and hands-on training take place in blocks in the first two years. Students are required to undertake and build a reflective log of clinical work in their own general practice.
The face-to-face component normally takes place for five consecutive days in Year 1 and seven consecutive days in Year 2 at King’s College London, Guy’s Campus.
