We currently train and provide clinical experience for Year 1, Year 2 and Year 4 medical students over a period of 55 days per year. Medical students often sit in on consultations; if they are sitting in with the doctor or nurse you are seeing you will be asked to give your consent that you are happy with this.
The students also learn a huge amount from talking to patients in-depth about their medical conditions, so we often contact patients with specific medical conditions to come in and discuss their experiences with medical students on specific teaching days. This is, of course, entirely voluntary and your care will not be affected in any way if you would prefer not to do this.
Here at Bacon Road we are proud to be teaching and training the next generation of GPs.
As part of the teaching, we are keen to provide the students with ‘real life’ conditions and would love to have you involved.
If you suffer, or have suffered, from any of the conditions listed below and would be happy to speak with our students, please let the receptionist know. Leela, our Medical Student Administrator, will then contact you to discuss further.
