Teaching in General Practice
As a training practice, we continually have GP Registrars with us at AMP. These are fully-qualified doctors who join the practice to complete their specialist general practice training and who will have already spent at least 3 years working in hospitals. They will often have more time to spend with you during your appointment. You may be asked if we can record/video your consultation for their training programme, however you do not have to agree to do this if asked.
We regularly undertake the teaching of medical students/physicians assistants from various universities here at AMP. Often, they will be observing consultations with the GP/Nurse. On some occasions, students will see patients before their consultation with the GP. Here they will take a brief history and examine you if necessary. These will be under the supervision of your GP.
You will be advised that there will be students observing when booking your appointment. If you do not feel comfortable with the students presence in your consultation then please let the receptionist know and they will inform the GP.
