Primary Care

Primary care

There is a step-wise approach to clinical placements in primary care. In the first year of the programme, there are some GP placements in addition to placements with other  healthcare providers including community dieticians, opticians, pharmacists, physiotherapists, rehabilitation centres and schools for disabled children to name a few. The GP placements include rural and inner city practices in Devon and Cornwall  with increasing exposure from the  second to fifth year of the programme. In the Fifth year, students spend a 6 week block in a practice and run parallel surgeries under the supervision of the GP.
