If you are a GP you could work with Leeds School of Medicine to pass on your skills to the general practitioners of the future. GP Educators are essential to all medical schools in order to ensure the next generation of doctors are equipped with the relevant knowledge and skills to excel in their field.
Here at Leeds our students experience teaching in primary care across all five years of study. Our primary care undergraduate teaching is fully integrated within the new MBChB curriculum and directly mapped onto the aims of Tomorrow's Doctors. This ensures primary care is strongly represented in the skill set of all our graduates and raises the profile of general practice as a positive career option.
As a GP Educator you would be provided with training via specialist continuing professional development, supported by online resources. This training is overseen by our experienced team in the Division of Primary Care, who are also responsible for coordinating our undergraduate placements in primary care across 110 GP practices. Our work includes assuring the quality of those placements in line with recommendations of relevant industry bodies.
If you are interested in being involved in our teaching opportunities, please contact Lizzie Luff for further information.
