GP and Community Education

The General Practice and Community team are passionate about creating medical graduates equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes to be excellent doctors.

Our students will have early exposure to primary care and our community placements will start from week seven in the first year of study.  Students will be allocated into Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and be exposed to a range of medical conditions, specialised clinics and multidisciplinary primary care colleagues.

General Practice (GP) placements will be arranged into separate immersion weeks throughout the course and will supported throughout by our highly capable educational supervisors within the PCNs.  There will be six immersion weeks within the first year and seven within the second year.   During these immersion weeks, students will also have tutorial style teaching of clinical cases and be expected to develop quality improvement activities and present clinical cases to their PCN.

The KMMS GP and Community team, led by Dr Catherine Neden, works in collaboration with the Practice Learning Unit at Canterbury Christ Church University and with colleagues in the Kent and Medway training hubs.
