The Practice started teaching medical students from Newcastle University in September 2017. You may be asked if you would agree to have a medical student sitting in your consultation with you. The students are keen to learn and to talk to patients. In order to make the transition from students to doctors, it is a vital part of their education to get real life experience, under the supervision of our staff. We fully appreciate that some patients may not wish to have a student in their consultation and we will respect this.
Please do not hesitate to ask a staff member if you would like to know more information or if you would like to become more involved in medical student education. Dr Zamoyski will be the practice lead for medical student teaching.
Please also be aware that as an undergraduate teaching practice, patient information may be processed and shared with other health professionals for audit purposes only.
