Community Based Teaching

UCL Medical School's commitment to deliver a large proportion of its undergraduate medical curriculum in community means we have several well established programmes in which GPs teach medical students in their own practices, often in subject areas which have traditionally been taught exclusively in the hospital. As well as traditional ‘Core’ General Practice attachments, where GPs supervise individual students for their four-week GP placements in years five and Six, GPs also take part in a variety of innovative programmes of practice based teaching:

The following subjects are taught in General Practice as components of the MBBS Programme in the relevant years:
» Year 1 & 2: Patient Pathways & Integrated Community Care Program (PPICC)
» Year 3: Integrated BSc in Primary Health Care
» Year 4: Medicine in the Community
» Year 5: Core General Practice 1
» Year 5: Care of the Older Person
» Year 5: Child Health
» Year 5: Dermatology
» Year 5: Mental Health
» Year 5: Women’s Health
» Year 6: GP Assistantship

We recruit GPs & Practices to teach medical students throughout the academic year. Teaching Opportunities for GPs booklet provides detailed information of all GP Community Based teaching programmes in terms of content, time commitment and payment.
