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 in the first term of 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.

Multiple General Practice (GP) placements will occur throughout the course and will supported throughout by our highly capable educational supervisors within the PCNs. These will provide a range of opportunities for learning across Kent and Medway, authentic patient experiences and the development of your necessary clinical skills.

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.
