A Virtual Induction Into General Practice

A Virtual Introduction to General Practice – Please click here for a Virtual Induction To General Practice

The Virtual Induction to General Practice has been produced to help support a wide range of learners that we support from work experience to medical students. The document has many embedded document and videos which offers the learners insight into how a general practice operates and also the career opportunities that are offered (and much more information). 

We hope that this virtual induction will help those who are interested find all the information they may need to take a work experience placement within the General Practice environment, and for those who have chosen to study or work within primary care, there are many additional resources to further your learning and career.
