Learning Opportunities

Teaching is held on a Wednesday, usually in the morning with some additional topic teaching in the afternoon. The morning group work teaching will broadly cover the clinical aspects of the GP curriculum.

At group work teaching there will be the opportunity to discuss with other GP trainees, tips for the exams, help with the e-portfolio, and the chance to address any other issues that arise in training or elsewhere. The group work teaching will be facilitated by a nominated Lead Training Programme Director (TPD). Trainees will be given topics to prepare and present during the ST2 and ST3 year.

There are many other educational opportunities available including membership for the Bath GP Education Research Trust (BGPERT), and the GP Education team are always available for help and advice, please contact via Paula or Maria. paulacain@nhs.net or maria.phantis@nhs.net
