Covid19 Impact on teaching medical students

It has been a sharp learning curve over the past few months as practices have had to rapidly adapt to the changes imposed by the pandemic.

Thank you to all those practices that continued to teach 1st, 2nd and 4th year students in March, up til lockdown. Only one group of 4th students missed their GP placement and we hope it may be possible to complete this in September 2020 .
The QUBGP team, led by Dr Helen Reid, provided a virtual GP placement experience using videos from a range of sources (including GP specialty training) as well as online simulated GP cases. The feedback from the students in these unusual circumstances was excellent and they are keen to get out into “real GP” in the Autumn.
