We are an approved training practice and from time to time we may have one or two GP registrars.
GP registrars, are fully qualified and registered doctors, i.e. they have passed out of medical school and completed their 2 years of preregistration in hospital and been admitted as fully registered doctors on to the GMC list.
They are currently on a 3 year GP registration course; this involves further hospital/general practice medical training in specialities which may include paediatrics, geriatrics, psychiatry, dermatology and general medicine etc. and an attachment to a practice under a supervising qualified GP. All GPs must undergo this training before they can become fully qualified GPs in their own right.
Registrars are attached to this practice for a 6 or 12 month period.
