Training Practice

The training for future doctors is a lengthy process & is very important. We are an accredited & approved training practice and as such are inolved in training medical students/qualified doctors throughout their training period.

A doctors training usually follows three stages; medical school/univeristy, foundation training & then specialty training.

Including medical school/university it can take around 10 years to train as a GP and 14 years to train as a surgeon.

Medical School/University

This is commonly a five year degree course. We are responsible for teaching students who attend the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) and are in their 4th or 5th (final year).


Year 4 students are with us in groups of 4 & attend Tuesdays only for an 8 week block during term time only. Our role is to teach them about 'Womens Health'. During their 8 weeks with us they will sit in with experienced doctors and have dedicated tutorlals,

Dr Jackson has overall responsibility for Year 4 students

Year 5 students are with us 3 days a week for an 8 week block. During this time they will consult with patients for 30 minutes. The final part of this consulation will have input from an experienced doctor.

Foundation Training

Foundation training is made up of F1 (foundation year one) & F2 (foundation year two). Foundation year doctors are trained and assessed against specific competencies set out in the curriculum agreed with the General Medical Council (GMC).

We have regular F2's who are with us 4 days a week for a 4 month block. During this time they will consult with patients under the supervision of an experienced GP and carry out home visits.

Specialty Training

This is when doctors specalise in either general practice or a specialty. It follows on from foundation training and typically lasts for 3 years. Progression through this training is based on the achievement of competencies 

Doctors on this scheme are often known as GP Registrars & are usually with us for 6 months, we usually have 2 GP Registars with us at any one time. During this 6 months they work 4.5 days per week and will consult with patints, carry out home visits and be part of the 'on call' rota. In addtion to seeing patients they also have 3 hours formal education/tutorial per week with a GP Partner or salaried GP.

Dr Gupta, Dr Wells, Dr Cale and Dr Suddes have overall responsibility for GP Registrars
