GP ST3 Education usually takes place in Seminar Room 1 at the Education Centre. Until further notice, all sessions will be delivered remotely using Zoom or MS Teams. Links to join sessions will be sent in advance each week. All Bolton trainees and trainers are welcome to attend by using the link, but for other guests please ask first as we will be using the Waiting Room feature to limit access to verified attendees only.
Sessions are subject to change based on speaker availability and pandemic-level changes.
You should recieve an email with the joining instructions for that week’s session – if you haven’t, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the online form so that we can amend our distribution lists.
August 2020 – February 2021
Sessions marked with a “*” are particularly suitable for GPST3s who commenced in February 2020 and/or are LTFT and out of sync with the traditional August-August rotations.
From 1530-1700 on teaching days, we would encourage trainees to spend time keeping their portfolio up to date.
