Training Practice

As a training practice, hospital doctors wanting to enter General Practice can spend up to twelve months with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors.

The title given to the Doctor in training is GP REGISTRAR, reflecting the fact that they are a qualified doctor and here to learn about practising General Practice within our surgery. Dr Stiff is our our GP ‘trainer’.

A visiting team from the Oxford Deanery will inspect the surgery regularly to ensure we provide the appropriate standard of care, levels of organisation and an environment that would be conductive for a training practice. The staff and Partners have all worked hard to achieve this.

We are strongly committed to providing high standards of care in an efficiently organised Practice, without losing the friendly touch that has been the hallmark of this Practice. We are committed to training doctors to become GP’s.

Medical students from a variety of universities who are studying for a medical degree also come here for training. These students are usually with us on 8 week placements. We also teach Foundation Year Doctors (fully qualified Doctors who are in their first two years after getting their degree). These Doctors are with us on 4 month placements.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please feel free to ask at Reception.

NB: Consultations may be video recorded as part of training and your medical records may be used for educational purposes. You will be made aware of this and asked to sign a consent form prior to your consultation. You are under no obligation and it will not affect your treatment.
