Teaching Practicegreen_notebooks

We are involved in teaching GP trainees and medical students. Thank you for your cooperation in this important task of training our future doctors.




GP trainees these are doctors at least 2 years post- qualification and have committed to a 3 year GP training programme to become GPs. Part of this is spent in hospital and at least 1 year in General Practice. They are able to work independently and are supervised by Dr Trainor.

Medical students (from University of Sunderland or University of Newcastle upon Tyne Medical Schools) are training to become doctors. They are taught in practice on Tuesdays by Dr Couchman. They may be present in the room whilst seeing a GP (sitting in) or they may be seeing patients directly under GP supervision.



If you have any questions about training within our practices please speak to reception who will direct queries to the appropriate person in our team.

Thank you for your help!
