Championing and cultivating the intellectual expertise at the heart of the profession of General Practice
SAPC, working in partnership with the RCGP, is leading work to raise the profile of, capacity for, and impact of clinical scholarship across the Primary Care community.
Scholarship refers to both the intellectual task of GP practice (Every GP a Scholar), and the collective professional wisdom of our discipline.
Scholarship is the higher level thinking that underpins the everyday pragmatism of clinical practice - the intellectual expertise that enables clinicians to deliver highest quality care to their individual patients.
Scholarship is a necessary part of professional excellence: both in the context of the clinical consultation, as well as the extended roles undertaken by many GPs including practice development and organisation, education, innovation, leadership, and research.
The GP Scholarship programming is rethinking how we recognise, champion, and cultivate General Practice as the intellectual discipline it is, and needs to be, to address today's healthcare challenges.
