Primary Care Fellows
Primary Care Fellow
"I am a newly qualified GP who is working at St George's Medical Practice in West Bridgford. I joined the Division of Primary Care in August 2017 and would like to thank everybody for their kind and warm welcome.
I initially applied for a typical HEEM Fellowship, but this was declined, partly due to the fact that my clinical sessions were not in an "under-doctored" area. However, with the help of Christine Johnson and Nigel Cartwright (who was my Educational Supervisor in my last year of training), we managed to get a "fellowship-like" scheme agreed and funded which I am very grateful for.
I do four clinical sessions at my GP surgery (where I am also the GP Tutor for the CP2 students we have), and my other 4 sessions (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) are split between working here at the University in the Primary Care Education Unit (PCEU) and also doing some work for Rushcliffe Training Hub, mainly regarding Physician Associate student placements in the area. I am also undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education.
I have always had an interest in teaching and have tried to take every opportunity during my early doctor years to teach students on an ad-hoc basis. I am delighted to finally get a chance to do this on a more formal and regular basis and it is something I would be very keen to continue throughout my career. I have already had some direct teaching experience and am looking to get some knowledge of assessment and involvement in curriculum development. I am also looking forward to helping Dr Ed Tyrrell with the Community Follow Up (CFU) module."
